Erling Haaland has revealed that he forgot what Pep Guardiola said in his halftime team talk during Manchester City’s win over Arsenal.
With the score 1-1 at halftime, Guardiola’s words will have held some meaning but Haaland was honest in admitting he forgot what his manager said amidst the joy of the victory over the Gunners which sent them top of the Premier League table.
Speaking to Amazon Prime Sport, the Norwegian said: “There were small adjustments at halftime from Pep, in the end we have quality and we need to get it from every single player, which is what we did today.”
“I honestly don’t remember what he said to us, I’m just so happy right now.”

“We can all agree that Arsenal have been the best team this season so to come to their place and play against them is not easy. But we played an amazing game and got three really important points and we’re in the title race again.”
City’s next game sees them travel to face Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Saturday afternoon as they look to continue their solid run of form.
