Erling Haaland sends message to Manchester City fans ahead of Sunday’s derby

Erling Braut Haaland has sent a message to Manchester City fans ahead of the blockbuster Manchester derby on Sunday.

The 22-year-old has made a brilliant start to the 2022-23 season after joining City in the summer. 

He has struck two hat-tricks this term, taking his goals tally to 14 in just 10 appearances across all competitions. 

The Norwegian will be in action at the Etihad Stadium for his first Manchester derby today. 

Haaland sent a message to City fans ahead of the big match, saying (as per Sky Sports): “I don’t think I need to say too much. All I need to say is that I’m ready.” 

Best striker 

Haaland is easily the best striker in the Premier League right now. No other footballer looks even close to his level. 

Scoring goals is the most normal thing in the world for him. The Norway international has proved his goalscoring prowess at Molde, Red Bull Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund.

Haaland is showing his magic in the English top-flight. He boasts incredible pace and his finishing is superior to everyone else. 

The striker is likely to create plenty of problems for Manchester United’s defence. Erik ten Hag must make special arrangements to contain Haaland’s threat.

Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane have formed a good defensive partnership and have been impressive for the Red Devils in the last few matches. 

However, their real test will be on Sunday when they must stop Haaland and his teammates.
