In Wednesday's 3-0 win over West Ham United, Erling Braut Haaland once again demonstrated why he is considered one of the greatest footballers of his generation. The Manchester City striker's clinical finish for the team's second goal was a testament to his extraordinary skill and composure in front of goal.
Haaland's goal also set a new Premier League record, as it was his 35th goal of the season, surpassing the previous record set by Alan Shearer and Andy Cole. The City players, led by Pep Guardiola, paid tribute to the Norwegian striker with a guard of honour after the match, a gesture that touched Haaland.
Speaking after the match, Nathan Ake, who had opened the scoring for City, praised Haaland for his hard work and dedication. According to Ake, Haaland's consistent efforts in training and his selfless attitude towards the team make him a valuable asset to the squad. Ake also emphasised that Haaland's humility in the face of his achievements is remarkable and that he fully deserves all the praise he receives.
The win over West Ham United saw City reclaim the top spot in the Premier League standings, with the team now one point ahead of their closest rivals with a game in hand. Looking ahead to their next match against Leeds United, City will be hoping to build on their impressive performance and extend their lead at the top of the table. With Sam Allardyce now in charge of Leeds, the match promises to be an exciting clash between two talented teams.
