Erling Haaland of Manchester City celebrates scoring his team's first goal during the Premier League match between Manchester City and Everton FC at Etihad Stadium on February 10, 2024

Man City striker Erling Haaland.

Erling Haaland has hit back at comments from Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold that his side’s trophies ‘mean more’ than Manchester City’s.

Alexander-Arnold was asked to discuss the rivalry between the teams in recent seasons, with Liverpool and Manchester City having gone head-to-head for the game’s biggest prizes.

The two teams meet in a huge Premier League clash this weekend and ahead of the game Alexander-Arnold has stoked the fire with a dig in the direction of the Citizens’ regime.

“It’s tough,” Alexander-Arnold told FourFourTwo. ‘We’re up against a machine that’s built to win – that’s the simplest way to describe City and their organisation.

“Looking back on this era, although they’ve won more titles than us and have probably been more successful, our trophies will mean more to us and our fanbase because of the situations at both clubs, financially.

“How both clubs have built their teams and the manner in which we’ve done it, probably means more to our fans.”

Haaland has hit back with a jibe of is own, saying last season he won the treble and Alexander-Arnold “hasn’t felt” that feeling.

“If he wants to say that, okay,” Haaland said to Sky Sports.

“I’ve been here one year and I’ve won the treble and it was quite a nice feeling, I don’t think he knows exactly this feeling…

“Liverpool can talk as much as they want, or Trent Alexander-Arnold can talk as much as he wants… I don’t know why he does that, but I don’t mind.”
