Haaland can get even deadlier

In partnership with FootballTransfers, SciSports expert Yash Shah explains: “Haaland excels as a poacher or mobile striker. He is someone who is a very involved in the penalty box but does not create too many chances or is involved with defensive actions.

“This is opposite to the forwards that City have used under Pep. Particularly after Aguero left, City have flourished playing false 9s or shadow strikers – someone with fluid movement who can function both wide and centrally., and thereby excel in a possession-heavy system. The likes of Phil Foden, Gabriel Jesus and even Julian Alvarez were not very involved inside the penalty area but offer much more offensive contributions in possession.
