The superstar arrived at Manchester City for £51m last summer and has enjoyed a prolific first season on the goal front. 2Jamie Carragher suggested that Erling Haaland signed for the wrong clubCredit: Rex 2Haaland struggled in Manchester City’s defeat at TottenhamCredit: PA Haaland has already scored 25 goals in the Premier League with another six in other comps making him the most lethal marksman in Europe. He’s struck a remarkable FOUR hat-tricks and is well on course to smash Mohamed Salah’s record of 32 in a 38-game season. But Haaland has been criticised for his all-round play with some saying that he’s potentially made Manchester City worse. Pep Guardiola’s side trail leaders Arsenal by five points in the race for the title after failing to close the gap following a 1-0 defeat at Tottenham. Haaland struggled and even failed to register a single shot on target in North London. His performance was once again the topic of conversation and Carragher even made the bold claim that he perhaps shouldn’t have joined City. Speaking on Sky Sports, the ex-Liverpool defender said: “He may have actually picked the wrong club to actually get the best out of him. “Manchester City, as a team, have scored the same amount of goals. Most read in Football “He’s scored 25 Premier League goals, but Manchester City as a team have scored the same amount of goals and they’ve conceded more and it’s far easier to counter-attack them as well. “So they’re a different team and a lesser team with Erling Haaland in the team and it’s not his fault. “Manchester City as a team will not play end to end football, it’s not Pep Guardiola’s way. “Erling Haaland has still scored 25 goals, but we’re not seeing the full package of what this player can do because of the team that he’s gone to. “I’m not criticising him and I think he’s that he’s so good he’s still scored 25 goals, but we’ve probably only seen 60 or 70 per cent of him. “We’re not seeing that power and that blistering pace, but we’ve got to come back to the fact that no matter how many goals he’s scored as an individual, Manchester City have scored exactly the same number of goals.”
