Manchester United, Erling Braut Haaland


Haaland, Foden and Manchester City emerged victorious from Sunday’s Premier League match at the Etihad Stadium, although the Norwegian was possibly responsible for one of the biggest misses of the season when the light blues were 0-1 down.

The turnaround was a fact with just over ten minutes left to play when Foden finished coolly in the far corner of United’s cage.

– What is it with Phil Foden and these games against Manchester United? The sixth goal in four games now. He puts the ball away in the corner where there is space. Magnificent football, magnificent scoring, said Nils Johan Semb at Viaplay about the 2-1 score.

Just before the end, Haaland took advantage of a mistake at the back by United and scored 3-1. Thus, Jærbuen also got a nice compensation for the incredible miss he had on a wide open goal just before the break.

Foden equalized after 56 minutes of play. The City winger thundered up towards the same angle that Marcus Rashford had hit when he made it 0-1 early in the game.

A great playing André Onana in the United cage had stopped Foden in the first half, but was completely without a chance at the kremmerhuset by a finish from the Englishman.

Rush at the referee

Just seconds earlier, Rashford had seemingly had a clear path towards the City goal, but the United goalscorer fell to the grass after being tackled on the shoulder by Kyle Walker.

The TV production from Manchester showed just that situation in the wake of City’s equaliser.

– There is a furious Erik ten Hag, because this is the situation that will be discussed, pointed out Viaplay commentator Kasper Wikestad while the replays were shown.

Referee Andy Madley was obviously told that by the Dutch manager afterwards.

– Ten Hag is at breaking point. He just threw a water bottle, Manchester Evening News’ Samuel Luckhurst noted.

– He even scolded the referee when City countered. That the attack ended with a goal, and was not canceled by VAR only made Erik ten Hag’s fury worse. No wonder he ended up with a yellow card, pointed out BBC journalist Simon Stone.

Erik ten Hag himself refers to it as disappointing that some “defining situations” went against them. He refers both to a tackle and tough tackle from City goalkeeper Ederson on Alejandro Garnacho inside the 16-metre area, and the episode with Rashford just before the equaliser.

– I looked at it again, and I asked Rashy if there was contact. It may have been easy, but there was contact, says the Dutchman in an interview shown on Viaplay about the latter incident.

Speaking to Sky Sports, former top referee Mike Dean was clear that Manchester United and the manager did not have strong arguments.

– The contact does not justify the way Rashford goes to the ground. It’s not a foul and it was the right decision,” Dean said of the contentious situation.

Much one way

City dominated from the start at home against their arch-rival. According to statistics agency Opta, the visitors had 18 shots against them during the first half.

Since Opta began keeping these statistics 21 seasons ago, this has only happened to United once before, against Fulham in March 2009.

But still, it was United and Marcus Rashford who were to silence the home crowd in the eighth minute of play, after a long play from goalkeeper André Onana.

Rashford thundered in with his right foot when Bruno Fernandes had brought down the long pass and played on to the United striker. The shot flew like a projectile into the corner of the City goal, via the crossbar.

– This is the way to do it! A dream goal, exclaimed Viaplay commentator Kasper Wikestad.

– Very weak defensive play by Manchester City, pointed out colleague Nils Johan Semb.

After just over a quarter of an hour of play, Rashford came close to getting on his own with City keeper Ederson, but a slight touch to the head allowed Walker to run up to his England colleague and clear the situation.

United finished the first half with two finishes and a total, and only Rashford’s one on target. The Red Devils also had only 26 percent ball possession after half-time.

Manchester City’s dominance only continued after the change of sides. 27-3 in the number of finishes, and still 76 percent ball possession in favor of City, was finally enough to turn the game in the light blues’ favour.
