Erling Haaland absolutely bodies Brighton defender after insane pass by Ederson


Erling Haaland returns to the score sheet thanks to a brilliant long pass upfield from Ederson that unravels the Brighton defense and serves up a tap-in to put Manchester City in front.

Alisson Becker set up Mo Salah’s winning goal in the clash but fast forward to Saturday and it was another Brazilian goalkeeper turning provider, this time for City.

Ederson produced an outrageous pass in behind the backline with his cultured left foot and Haaland latched onto it.

He displayed lightning quick pace to beat Robert Sanchez to the ball and then knocked Adam Webster out of the stadium with a shoulder barge before rolling into the empty net.

Trying to barge Haaland off the ball is like trying to break down a brick wall. The guy is just a freak of nature, isn’t he? 

Having scored for a seventh consecutive home game, Haaland is on track to break all kinds of records this term.

Moments before finding the net, the Norwegian goal machine wanted a penalty after going down under the challenge of Sanchez.

A VAR check showed that there was contact from the Spain shotstopper but the officials did not feel there was enough to award a spot-kick.

However, City did get a penalty later on in the half for a Lewis Dunk tackle on Bernardo Silva.

The game went on for a considerable period before Pawson pointed to the spot and allowed Haaland to smash in his 22nd goal in all competitions.
