Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has praised Erling Haaland for his performance against Liverpool in the FA Community Shield on Saturday.

City suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Premier League rivals Liverpool at the King Power Stadium.

Haaland, who joined the Premier League champions from Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window, started the match.

The striker had a great chance late on in the game, but he failed to successfully convert it.

Guardiola told City’s official website about Haaland: “He had chances – two or three in the first half and one at the end. Always he was there. He fought a lot and made the movements.

“It’s good for him to see the reality of the new country, new league. He was there. Today he didn’t score – another day he will score.”

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland can be backed at 13/5 on Betfair to end the 2022-23 Premier League season as the top scorer.
