Football News: Erling Haaland Sevilla substitution leaves Man City fans

Erling Haaland Sevilla substitution leaves Man City fans with same Pep Guardiola complaint


ERLING HAALAND was in fine form against for Manchester City on his Champions League debut.


Manchester City fans were unhappy that head coach Pep Guardiola for choosing to substitute Erling Haaland against Sevilla after the Norwegian star's impressive Champions League debut for his new club. The 22-year-old scored twice as the Premier League champions ran riot in Seville, recording a 4-0 win over the La Liga side, but not every fan was content.


Haaland, a £51million summer signing from Borussia Dortmund, made another huge impression for his new club in his first European outing for City, repeating the same heroics that he produced on his Red Bull Salzburg and Dortmund debuts in the competition.


He opened the scoring at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan with an incisive finish to put the visitors in front, volleying home from Kevin de Bruyne's cross. And in the second half, he was alert and in the right position to sweep home the rebound after Yassine Bounou had tipped away Phil Foden's effort.


But with an hour on the clock and the game all but over, Guardiola made the decision to rest Haaland ahead of Saturday's home fixture against Tottenham by bringing on Julian Alvarez instead.

That would have appeared to be the most sensible decision given Haaland's fast start to life at the Etihad Stadium, scoring 11 goals in just seven appearances for his new club.


However, fans were keen to see the goal machine allowed to try and score his third hat-trick of the season, having netted back-to-back trebles against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.

And Guardiola's early substitution was not as welcomed as it might have been, although the 51-year-old clearly had the big picture in mind, as he brought off Haaland for a well-earned rest.

One City fan wrote on Twitter: “It’s a shame we are not going to see Haaland hat-trick but Alvarez goal can settle things.”


Another fan agreed, tweeting: “So badly wanted to see a Haaland hat-trick for the records, Alvarez ball though.”


There was criticism for Guardiola too, with one questioning why he is only given 70 minutes a match: "Has Pep been trying to tell Haaland he only has 70mins to score a hat-trick?" they asked.


Haaland is likely to be given the chance to add to his tally of nine Premier League goals against Tottenham on Saturday and another hat-trick would surely put him on course to breaking a series of records in the English top-flight this season.
