Pep Guardiola says Erling Haaland will return to his lethal best in City’s next outing.

The Norwegian had nine shots in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea without finding the back of the net.

While Guardiola accepts it wasn’t his No.9’s best day in front of goal, he’s certain it won’t be long before he’s adding to his incredible tally of 73 strikes in just 80 games for City.

The boss was positive about his striker’s determination to continue to put himself in scoring positions before citing his own goalscoring record when asked if he had any advice for Haaland.

“Next time he’s going to score,” said Guardiola in his post-match press conference.

“I was a football player and I played 11 years and scored 11 goals. 

“One goal a season. These are my stats.

“So I’m not a proper man to give advice about the striker and what they have to do. 

“We create the chances, he had the chances and in the next game he is going to score.

“Absolutely [I believe that]. It’s football, he’s a human being.”
