Man City star Erling Haaland reveals he scored with his ‘balls’ against Chelsea

Nov 14, 2023

Manchester City goal machine Erling Haaland is willing to do whatever it takes to score a goal… even if that means using his privates.

City drew 4-4 in an eight-goal thriller at Stamford Bridge, with the Norway international netting twice.

Haaland opened the scoring from the penalty spot, before Chelsea‘s Thiago Silva made it 1-1 four minutes later.

Pochettino’s side then went ahead through former Man City star Raheem Sterling, and Manuel Akanji levelled shortly after.

Haaland eventually restored City’s lead after half-time, bundling the ball over the line, before Nicolas Jackson made it 3-3.

Rodri then put Guardiola’s side ahead one again before ex-Man City academy graduate Cole Palmer converted a penalty, as the points were shared.

“I have never scored with the balls before. So it’s a milestone,” he told Viaplay Sports post-match.

The 21-year-old now takes his goal tally to 13 in the Premier League for the season after the opening 12 games.

Haaland now has 49 goals in 47 games in the English top flight and is set to smash more records.

Andy Cole managed 50 goals in 65 games since the Premier League was established in 1992, with Haaland on course to break that record.

“I don’t think much of it. I’m thinking about winning. We top the table now and it hasn’t been such a bad start to the season after all,” the City star said when asked if he can beat Cole’s record.

City are next in action when they entertain Liverpool in a mouthwatering clash at the Etihad on Saturday, November 25.
