Manchester City – Everton 1-1
Erling Braut Haaland (22 years old) does not deny himself.
At home against Everton, he scored his 21st league goal after 24 minutes. The goal came after a fantastic attack by the Light Blues, as Yarboine put the ball into the net from a few meters away.

He was treated harshly by the Everton players, but he got into the duels himself aggressively and upset many of the men of the away team.
– It is not uncommon for such duels to occur in a match, and may have been concluded by the time the match has been called off, says TV 2 football expert Jesper Mathisen.
There has to be a flare in matches like this, and it’s only natural that Haaland noticed who was behind him early in the game, says Mathisen.
Just before the break, Haaland tackled Everton’s Vitalij Mikolenko. He angered the away camp, but Yrbeu escaped with a yellow card.
There is nothing to say about Haaland’s burning level in the last game of the year, because he is really motivated in all situations. He receives harsh treatment, but gives us a beating potion in every duel. The yellow card is deserved, and I think Haaland got a clear message at half-time from Guardiola that he needs to calm down, says Mathisen.
After 64 minutes, Everton and Demere Gray equalised. When Rodri lost the ball in the middle, Gray took matters into his own hands and fired straight into the goal.

Just before the break, the 22-year-old got into a duel with Everton’s Vitalij Mikolenko too late. It generated major reactions among the away team, with Jordan Pickford and James Tarkovsky in particular raging.
