Erling Haaland Recent Goal Draught Raise Concern About His Adaption At Etihad

Erling Haaland could calm the City Fans by scoring in the Spurs game.

Following the loss to United, City’s supporters may have forgotten Erling Haaland’s goal-scoring streak, which has allowed for debate about whether or not City is a better team with Haaland on it.

This seems to be a similar argument to the one that was made about Haaland’s ability to succeed in English football, which he answered in two or three games, but the team is currently having trouble giving him opportunities but not so at the Etihad.

Since the return of domestic football following the World Cup, the No.9 has started two games at the Etihad and scored against both Liverpool and Everton, but this is insufficient as the city team has been struggling to win games in recent times.

The game against Tottenham will be a high task for the city squad because no other team has probably caused Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City as much suffering as Spurs and City’s Star Haaland scoring his team to a win away at Spurs will be excruciatingly difficult

With the United’s shocking defeat, City do not have much confidence going into their next game against one of their biggest nemeses, but neither does Tottenham, who have bigger problems. How well the Blues exploit the Spurs’ flaw could foreshadow what lies ahead for the rest of the season.

8 points is a significant deficit to overcome in order to catch up with Arsenal and it is doable if City can win their games this week against Tottenham and Wolves. Guardiola’s comment about not winning the Premier League meant that he is aware that city wouldn’t win the title if they couldn’t win their games.

The decision of city to stop their pursuit of the Spurs No.10 to go after the in-form Norwegian would be a balanced debate if the Dutch man performs superbly against Spurs and their English striking talent Harry Kane.

The fans will be looking to their lethal striker to step up on Thursday and score City to the win in order to close the gap which is very possible as there are no shortage of players who have done this for City time and time again over the years under Pep Guardiola.
