Haaland Dampens Manchester City's Treble Hopes

Haaland Dampens Manchester City's Treble Hopes

Erling Haaland, after securing a brace for Manchester City in their recent victory against Everton, shocked fans with his candid admission that the club cannot replicate their previous Treble-winning feat.

Despite his stellar performance that propelled City to a 2-0 triumph, Haaland downplayed the team's chances of securing a second consecutive Treble this season. The Norwegian striker, who now boasts an impressive tally of 52 goals in 53 Premier League appearances, expressed skepticism about City's ability to achieve such a feat again.

Following City's temporary rise to the top of the table, Liverpool reclaimed the summit merely 146 minutes later with a decisive 3-1 victory over Burnley. When questioned about City's prospects of clinching another Treble, Haaland firmly stated, "No, we won’t do that."

Haaland's return to form was particularly noteworthy, marking his first goals since November after enduring a spell on the sidelines due to a foot injury. Reflecting on his comeback, the 23-year-old striker emphasized the satisfaction of being back in action and contributing to his team's success.

"It was good to be playing again and an amazing feeling to win," Haaland remarked. "I’ve been practicing with my right foot, I should have scored one like this at Brentford, so it shows improvement."

Despite the setback of his injury, Haaland praised the team's resilience and expressed confidence in their collective ability to overcome challenges. "We always work hard as a team, so a fantastic performance," he affirmed. "It was a good win."

Sharing insights into his experience of being sidelined, Haaland admitted, "It’s been horrible. I really don’t like it, but it makes you appreciate going into training and getting a bit nervous before games."

As City continues their pursuit of success, Haaland's return to form serves as a significant boost to their aspirations. Stay tuned for further developments as the season progresses.

With this, Haaland joined his manager Pep Guardiola, who also said that he is “Doubtful” of his team chances to replicate last season’s treble this season.

Manchester City's Impressive Form

In the English Premier League, Manchester City presently holds the second spot, amassing 52 points across 23 games. They trail league leaders Liverpool by a mere 2 points, with the Reds tallying 54 points but having played one more match. Manchester City's performance in recent fixtures has been nothing short of exceptional, as they have emerged victorious in their last five consecutive outings. Their most recent display of dominance came in a commanding 2-0 triumph over Sean Dyche's Everton, with both goals expertly scored by the prolific Erling Haaland.
