Pep asked if 20 goals for Haaland is good...

"But I am so upset with him, he didn't score three goals! 

"The petition to sack him from the Premier League won’t happen!"


The best around

Kevin De Bruyne (94) has now overtaken David Silva (93) as the overall assist leader for City in the Premier League.  

The best midfielder in the world. 


Guardiola reaction

"The result is good, we play quite good. We struggled to break their high pressing. Last season we suffered a lot against them but today we were much better.

"Some players were not at their best but we create a lot of chances. We were solid. It was a good game.

"For a long time Phil Foden is playing really good. The impact from him is great.

"Erling Haaland had the chances again. He scored a brilliant goal. It's an incredible weapon for us, a big threat. I am so satisfied.

"We will see the result from Arsenal and Liverpool, always in Premier League there are good games.

"Being close to the top of the league is important going into the World Cup."


Mahrez reaction

"It was a difficult game, we made it easy by scoring early and then we controlled the game. We had a lot of chances to score more but we didn't. We didn't concede much, it was a controlled game.

"Haaland is part of our team, he is our striker. Like any other striker, if we can find him it's perfect because he is on fire. If not, there are a lot of players and everyone can make a difference. We have to keep going with the momentum."


That was a baaaad season

In five appearances this season, Erling Haaland has scored as many Premier League goals at the Etihad as the entire Manchester City squad during the 2006-07 campaign (10).
