Erling Haaland Man City 2022/23
How impressed have you been with Erling Haaland?

People chuck about the ‘bought it all’ jibes all the time when it comes to Manchester City and their successes; however, the way in which Pep Guardiola has revved up the side as a non-stop domestic winning machine is absolutely extraordinary. Maintaining such an impeccable standard is something seldom few sides over history have managed, but Pep’s side are showing no signs of slowing down. 

Erling Haaland has been the success story of the season so far for the Cityzens, smashing 14 goals in his first 10 games. The first City player to score on his Premier League and Champions League debut, the Norwegian smashed the most amount of goals in August in the division’s history.  

As for Man United, whisper it quietly, it looks like things are starting to take shape for Erik Ten Hag. The Dutchman was named as September’s Manager of the Month, with United winning against both Leicester and Arsenal to climb up to 5th. It’s by no means the finished glossy product just yet, but at least there are reasons for United fans to be more optimistic about the road ahead now.
