Erling Haaland claims that Man City are building momentum in Premier League title battle

Erling Haaland claims that Man City are building momentum in Premier League title battle

Erling Haaland has warned that Manchester City are gathering momentum in the Premier League title race.

The Norwegian striker hit his first goals of 2024 as City kept up the pressure on Liverpool with a 2-0 win over Everton on Saturday (10.02.24) and Haaland warned that the team is beginning to "click" as the business end of the season comes into view.

He said: "It’s a fantastic feeling.

"It’s fantastic to be back and it’s also good to keep on winning. That’s important and we have to keep going.

"We have already been on quite a good run. It is a good thing to start to click now. That’s never bad. It’s in the next few months when you win things, so we keep going."

Haaland's brace ended the resistance of a stubborn Everton and the marksman knew that the team would have to be patient in the game against the relegation strugglers.

He said: "Back to normal finally. It’s good to be back to normal.

"We knew how the game was going to be and they were going to make it difficult for us.

"But we knew if we trusted ourselves it was going to be really difficult for (Everton). That’s what we did and in the end it was fantastic to win."

City have now won 10 successive games in all competitions and manager Pep Guardiola was pleased with his side's resolve in overcoming the tough test.

He said: "I love to win this type of game. The difficulty is there. We knew it, we talked about it.

"Always Everton here at home is really complicated. We’ve lost a lot of points over many years.

"What pleased me the most is something the people cannot see – the body shape, the positivity, the body language."
