Carragher: “Haaland may have chosen the wrong club”

Manchester City could not take advantage of the great opportunity that was presented to him this Sunday. Starting at 4:30 p.m. local time, Guardiola’s men began their confrontation with Tottenham at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the ambition of winning and cutting points against Arsenal, the leader, who played against Everton on their visit to Goodison Park.

The wish did not come true. The skyblues lost by the minimum against the spurs and the loot was nil. After not perforating the goal of Hugo Lloris, the spotlight falls on his main offensive argument: Erling Haaland. The Norwegian had his worst afternoon in the English league. He finished the match without scoring and, for the first time on the islands, without getting a shot on goal.

After 90 very difficult minutes for the skyblue In general and Haaland in particular, Carragher, a Liverpool legend and now a commentator on Sky Sports, wanted to analyze the recent ‘marriage’ of both and pointed out that this could be less well matched than what Haaland’s individual statistics indicate. (25 goals in 19 Premier games, 31 in 27 games in all competitions). For Carragher, Haaland is limited by City himself and City have not improved under Haaland.

“I felt that this season we have only seen 60% of Haaland”, began his reasoning. “Think about the first goal he scored for West Ham, that space behind and that run. That is not the way City usually play. He arrives from Dortmund in a League in which he counterattacks and goes from area to area and you could see that enormous rhythm. You don’t see it here anymore. It is possible that he has chosen the wrong club to get the best out of himself ”, he sentenced about the individual aspect of the Norwegian.

“Haaland has scored 25 goals in the Premier, but City have the same number of goals, but they have conceded more. Haaland has scored 25 goals in the Premier, but City have the same number of goals as last year and, in addition, they have conceded more. They are a different and worse team with Haaland on the pitch, but it’s not his fault. Haaland will continue to score 25 league goals and many will come from centers that he will finish off. But we are not seeing everything he can do for the team he has chosen, ”said the former defender of the Anfield and England team.
