Erling Haaland against Liverpool FC in the Premier League
He has played two matches against Liverpool, and he has zero goal contributions against the Merseyside club. Even after a dismal start to their Premier League campaign, Jurgen Klopp’s side still managed to defeat Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez ruled the whole match with their brilliant defensive skills. They were totally brilliant against Manchester City. While James Milner started in the place of Trent Alexander-Arnold and gave a great performance.
A picture where Liverpool’s Thiago was trying to intercept Erling Haaland went viral because it was quite bizarre at the very same time. In order to intercept the ball, Thiago mistakenly kicked the Norwegian striker at his Groin area.
And it also became a meme material for a group of individuals too. “He’s just making sure there are no junior Haalands in future,” one said. “Kick the ball not the balls,” other said.
