Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has denied he has a problem with Erling Haaland after the Norway striker bagged another two goals on Tuesday night. Haaland was the star of the show for City once again as he helped his team win 4-0 against Sevilla in the Champions League and storm to the top of their group.
“I think his numbers in all his career not just here but when he was in previous teams is quite similar so he has an incredible sense of goal,” Guardiola continued as he spoke about Haaland. “He scored two in the centre. And yeah we have incredible numbers in scoring goals so, yeah, continue like that. Another final next Saturday against Tottenham and hopefully he can continue scoring goals
Guardiola then reflected on the performance of Foden, who already has two goals and three assists to his name this season..”
“Phil has an incredible thing,” added the 51-year-old. “Lately he is not playing so good like normally but always do a job and always run and always fight and always is a stable for the team. And I’m pretty sure today the goal and the assist he has done is going to help him. Phil’s position is dynamic and his work ethic and we have to learn a lot.”
City now top Group G of the Champions League on goal difference after scoring one more goal than Borussia Dortmund, who also bagged three points from their opener after dispatching Copenhagen 3-0 in Germany. The Citizens are set to host Dortmund at the Etihad Stadium in their second European encounter next Wednesday.
