Manchester City’s dynamic duo send a message to their rivals

The performance of Manchester City’s dynamic duo against Luton Town overnight sent a powerful message to City’s rivals. Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne are back to their best and now loom over the rest of the season.

The pair combined last night to end Luton Town’s hope of a famous FA Cup upset at Kenilworth Road. De Bruyne provided four assists for Erling Haaland as they resumed their partnership which is crucial to the Pep Guardiola’s side. Haaland scored 5 on the night but his connection with Kevin De Bruyne was a standout of City’s 6-2 win. They have now combined 16 times during their time together at Manchester City for goals. Rob Edwards side was powerless to stop the pair throughout last nights game.

Speaking post-game Pep Guardiola explained how the pair need each other to thrive on the pitch. The City manager explained: “I think Erling needs a guy with the vision, the quality and generosity. Kevin is a less selfish player in front of the goal, and if he could have helped him score another one, he would do it. And Kevin needs the movement from Erling but of course, we know how aggressive they are.”

Manchester City’s dynamic duo were at their devastating best last night against Luton Town. They appear to be in top form ahead of this weekend’s derby against Manchester United and for the crucial run of fixtures, the champions face afterwards.

The pair combined to send a powerful message to City’s rivals last night. They are back and ready to inspire their team as Pep Guardiola’s side chases history on several fronts this season.
