Manchester City’s goal scoring machine appears primed for Sunday’s derby

Manchester City’s goal scoring machine Erling Haaland appears primed for Sunday’s Manchester derby. The Norwegian striker will head into the game off the back of scoring 5 against Luton Town. Haaland looks back to his best after a two month injury layoff due to a foot injury. It could be a long afternoon at the Etihad Stadium for City’s fierce rivals if his performance against Luton Town carries into Sunday’s match.

Since making his return from a foot injury Haaland had been building towards a performance like the one against Luton Town. It had taken time for Manchester City’s goal scoring machine to rediscover his best form. There had been snippets from Haaland like his brace against Everton and his winner against Brentford. He also had a game to forget against Chelsea in their 1-all draw. It had taken time for Haaland’s touch to return after his injury layoff. But it returned with a vengeance against Luton Town.

At Kenilworth Road City’s number 9 looked every bit the player that has redefined the standards of goal scoring during his time at Manchester City. His goal scoring touch returned as he scored 5 times before he was substituted late in the second half. On top of that his all round performance was one of the best during his time at the club. Haaland was a part key in City’s build up play as his game continues to develop.

On the back of that performance Erling Haaland appears primed to make an impact against Manchester United. The striker looks back to his devastating best and his best form has arrived at a critical point in City’s season.

He scored twice against United earlier this season and Haaland could be a deciding factor in a must win game for Manchester City tomorrow.
