Following his hat-trick against Crystal Palace on Saturday, Erling Haaland of Manchester City has cautioned the rest of the Premier League that the best is yet to come.
Haaland increased his season total to six goals in four games with three goals in the second half that helped City come back from a 2-0 deficit to win 4-2 in the end.
After the game, Haaland said, “Of course you see on the pitch I like it and I sense a connection around me.” “Of course, it takes time, but I am confident that it will eventually arrive and improve. That gives me a wonderful sensation.”
The Norwegian international also used the occasion to make fun of teammate Phil Foden, who was criticized for failing to pass to the 22-year-old in recent games against Bournemouth and Newcastle but helped Haaland’s first goal.
He laughed, “Phil finally played the ball to me. “It feels so amazing, this feeling. We played for and with each other, and that is excellent. It doesn’t matter who scores; what matters is winning and having a winning attitude.”
Although Haaland has high expectations for his time in Manchester, he acknowledged that beating his father Alf-Inge, a former defensive midfielder who scored 18 goals in 181 games for City, Leeds United, and Nottingham Forest, is his top priority.
The player continued, “It’s a wonderful moment for me and my family, although my Dad would probably say he scored more goals in the Premier League than I did, so I’ll try to catch him.”
“Switch up the game was a pretty pleasant sensation. We had the confidence in one another to press on. In the second half, it was all about finishing what we started in the first. It’s a satisfying feeling.
“It has been a good start,” the speaker said. “It’s not easy to come to a new club, a new country.”
