Erling Haaland has unlocked a complex game for City against Crystal Palace. He scored a penalty for the Civics to add his three and put pressure on leaders Arsenal.
Erling Haaland’s penalty lifts Manchester City out of fear and frustration at Selhurst Park as Pep Guardiola’s side closes the gap to Arsenal to two points after beating Crystal Palace (0-1). I was able to.
It was not the best performance for City, who despaired before Vicente Guaita’s goal as they were unable to overcome good saves by the Spanish goalkeeper and well-fed defense of Patrick Vieira’s players. Thirteen minutes into the end, Michael Orise committed a childish and clumsy penalty to Erling Haaland’s transformed Ilkei Gundogan.
The Norwegian Gunner scored his 28th goal in the Premier League, giving Manchester three points and keeping the ‘Gunners’ happy this Saturday.
Many Arsenal fans were curious about what was happening in south London as Palace kept City at bay. City have decided to leave without Kevin De Bruyne in the starting lineup. Perhaps he was to give him a rest for his league duel against RB Leipzig in the Champions League.
Guardiola’s decision has taken a heavy toll on City’s creativity. They haven’t scored in almost five hours. A terrifying record that accounts for Vieira’s men’s latest results, without a win in 2023.
That’s why they devoted themselves to guarding and praying that City’s slim chance didn’t come through. and with full control of the ball in the box, he raised the crosshairs too high.
City needed a favor to break down the barrier and this happened 13 minutes from the end. His marker, Orise, found himself late in the play and turned up the revs for the German. He got ahead of it and the referee didn’t hesitate: a penalty.
Haaland did not fail from 11 meters away. He has 28 goals in this Premier League and on Saturday he is eight ahead of Harry Kane, who scored two goals at Tottenham at Hotspur.
The goal was enough for City to take the game and close the gap on Arsenal to two points. The ‘Gunners’ are one game short of him on Sunday against Fulham, and the advantage he puts back to five units.
With this loss, Palace remain 12th in the standings with 27 points, four above the relegation zone.
