“One more game, we need to focus” -Erling Haaland reveals Manchester City are aware Premier League title is not yet secured

Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland delivered a reminder for the club’s fans and his teammates that the Premier League title is not yet secured despite them overtaking Arsenal into pole position.

The Norwegian’s comments came after City secured a hard-fought 2-0 win against Tottenham away from home to move to 88 points from 37 games, two ahead of the Gunners.

Erling Haaland delivers a realistic message in the Premier League title race

Haaland was on target for both of Manchester City’s goals in a 2-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. It was their first win at the ground in seven visits, and the two goals also came after City had previously failed to score after attempting over 75 shots across multiple games.

Speaking to the Premier League’s official channel post-match, Haaland seemed focused and humble about his team’s position. Speaking about his feelings after the game, he said,

“There’s not much to say. Just relax, focus and believe in ourselves.”

He was then asked whether City have ‘one hand on the Premier League trophy’, to which he replied,

“No. One more game. As I said –focus. Now go home, relax, and enjoy, nothing more.”

He then doubled down on his stance, revealing manager Pep Guardiola too was of the same belief with his message in the dressing room. Haaland added,

“One more. Don’t think, now relax, and we go again Sunday. Don’t celebrate yet.”

Erling Haaland’s mentality is a reflection of the winning culture at Manchester City as the club edges closer to an unprecedented fourth-successive PL crown.

The Norwegian’s incredible stats for Manchester City

Since joining the club ahead of the 2022-23 season, Erling Haaland has been the top marksman in England by some distance. He has bagged 63 goals in his first 65 appearances, which is the highest tally for a player in their first two seasons in the Premier League.

Additionally, Haaland also ranks first in the number of goals scored over the last three seasons with 63, three more than Mohamed Salah, despite having played an entire season less than the Egyptian.

He won the PL Golden Boot with 36 strikes in 35 games last season and is on course to win his second one this year with 27 goals in 30 appearances.
