And the local newspaper believes Kevin De Bruyne has finally got the striker he deserves. English experts expect Erling Braut Haaland to score more than 40 goals this season. But Thierry Henry will choose Kylian Mbappe before Haaland.
The bull of Jæren is taking Manchester City by storm. 10 goals in the English Premier League It was followed on Tuesday by two goals in the opening match of the Champions League. Seville was relegated 4-0. Haaland began displaying goals by flying in the air and turning De Bruyne’s perfect cross into his 24th goal in the Champions League.
In the second half, Haaland’s number 25 also came in just 20 matches in the tournament.
– Erling Haaland has finally given Kevin De Bruyne what he deserves at Manchester City, chief writer writes Manchester evening news, Simon Bajkowski.
For years, Kevin De Bruyne has seen countless beautiful balls go to waste inside the box. Either there was nobody there or poor finishing from his teammates cost him a lot of passes. He adds that the Belgian has developed into England’s best player, but his numbers weren’t as high as they could have been.
Lokalavisen awards Erling Braut Haaland eight out of 10 possible points in his players exchange. Like De Bruyne and Phil Foden.
The average Norwegian scored in the Premier League so far (1.67 per match) points to 63 goals in 38 matches. Such an abnormal sum is considered improbable by experts in England. But Owen Hargreaves believes the 22-year-old from Bryan will erase Mohamed Salah’s record in the Premier League – 32 goals for Liverpool in the 2017-18 season.
I think he will break the Premier League record and end up with 45 goals in all competitions, says Hargreaves with both Manchester United and City.
“I expect him to turn 41,” replies ex-United player Rio Ferdinand at studio BT Sports – Reproduced by daily Mail.
– Low 40, former Manchester City player Jolyon Lescott follows.
But Thierry Henry – with 226 goals in eight seasons with Arsenal – would not have chosen Haaland.
– Mbappe still gets my vote, says the Frenchman.
Kylian Mbappe sank Juventus in the biggest game of the Champions League opener on Tuesday. Both scored in PSG’s 2-1 win and scored nine goals in six matches this season.
Mbappe can play both left and right. He can play in the middle. Henry argues that Haaland could only be the center forward.
The 45-year-old gold medalist and EC gold medalist for France is of course not without a Norwegian feel.
– He’s a great player and with him (Manchester City) could have won the Champions League meeting with Real Madrid last season, says Thierry Henry, referring to the dramatic spring semi-final. Manchester City lost 5-6 on aggregate.
Real Madrid finally won the tournament that Manchester City never topped.
