Phil Foden scored Haaland’s first goal against Palace and the pair were again preparing Forrest to climb the mountain in the 12th minute. The England attacker asked for an invitation from the left, which Hollande threw home to captain Joe Worrell.

Brennan Johnson delivered the best chance of the night for Forrest in side netting five minutes later and the game was already looking in the middle of the half when Dean Henderson hit Bernado Silva straight and Foden hit Haaland for a tap. teased,

Canelo probably scored the goal of the night when Forest gave him too much time and space to find the top corner at the end of Silva’s pass.

Alvarez impressed throughout the evening playing with Hollande and was cautious to pounce on Henderson with a perfect finish at the end of City’s usually-occupied marathon spell.

Hollande doesn’t care about records, claims Guardiola
After breaking the Premier League record for goals scored in August, post-match talks looked at how many chapters of the record book could have turned into papier-mâché during his time at Manchester.

“I think what he wants is to win the title. That’s my feeling. I think that’s what he wants and if the record and the goals help us win it will be perfect.” “Knowing him a little bit, we’ve been together for a month and a half, I don’t know if he’ll be happy to break the record if we don’t win the title.

Guardiola also admitted Haaland’s excitement around the training ground is a breath of fresh air as City prepare to win their fifth Premier League title in six seasons.

Erling is talking with the young players at the academy all the time. You see that in the canteen, Erling is talking to the players at the academy – I love it. He’s calm, training well, his Life is easy and after the games he has the ambition to score.”

Guardiola uncovers Man City’s clear-cut advantage in South America
Alvarez’s brilliant full debut gave Guardiola a chance to praise an unsung hero on City’s staff. “On Julian, we had incredible opinions. A friend of ours, Joan Patsy, our scout in South America, talked to me a year and a half ago.

He said, ‘This guy is special.’ I scored a lot of goals. They have an incredible amount of pressure to win. Now we are enjoying it.

Cooper laments his costly mistakes
This kind of quality means any opponent should be close to flawless when City are in this mood. ONE has gone through several squad turnovers since winning the Championship Playoff Finals, a team that Steve Cooper was nowhere to be found.

Bernardo Silva started with debutante Rennon Lodi and, although Henderson’s error for Haaland’s second stood out, Cooper felt all three first-half goals sent by his team were completely avoidable.
