It was a challenging match for Erling Braut Haaland and Manchester City at Anfield.

The top clash between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield ended in a 1–1 draw.

Erling Braut Haaland struggled to make a significant impact on the big game. The player from Norway finished with only one shot against Jürgen Klopp’s men.

“He will come back stronger – there’s no reason to believe otherwise. But today was not his day, and I can understand if he’s a bit upset after this match. He couldn’t quite get into the game, and he wasn’t played into his usual form,” says TV 2’s football expert Simen Stamsø-Møller about Haaland’s performance.

According to the statistics website Sofascore, the 23-year-old lost the ball five times and had 21 touches.

“You should expect more from Haaland, and you should expect more from De Bruyne today. By all means: You should expect more from the world’s best players,” is the expert’s verdict.

After the draw, it’s extremely close between Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester City with ten games left in the Premier League season.

Transfer Rumors

Lately, Haaland has been rumored to be leaving Manchester City. The Norwegian striker has been particularly linked with Real Madrid, who are still looking for a successor to Karim Benzema.

The Norwegian has previously expressed his desire to play in all the major leagues in Europe. Therefore, it’s very likely that he will one day move to a Spanish club. The question is when this will become a reality.

In recent days, there have been rumors that he is negotiating a new contract with City. Reportedly, he has demanded that a special Real Madrid clause be included in this contract, allowing him to transfer to the Spanish giants in the future.
