Analysts talk about Erling Haaland current struggle

Halland Issues

The analysts discuss Manchester City’s difficulties in creating chances and scoring goals, specifically with their main striker, Erling Haaland. Arsenal’s defenders, Gabriel and Saliba, effectively blocked City’s attacks, disrupting Haaland’s game and making it hard for him to find openings. The speakers praise Arsenal’s defensive tactics and express concern about City’s lack of goal scorers, with Haaland being their primary option. They suggest potential solutions, such as using Julian Alvarez or Bernardo Silva as false number nines to create numerical advantage. Additionally, Haaland himself admits to past tactics of intentionally diving to draw yellow cards and distract opponents, but acknowledges that he no longer employs such tactics.
