Fans Criticise Haaland For Missing 3 Big Chances In Community Shield

Manchester City’s Erling Haaland had a first half to forget on Saturday, July 30 during the season curtain raiser against Liverpool. Pep Guardiola gave Haaland the nod to start for the Citizens in his first competitive game, but the fomer Borrussia Dortmund struggled at the King Power Stadium.

Haaland joined Manchester City in a £51 million deal earlier this month and is expected to lead Pep Guardiola’s attack in the 2022/23 campaign.

Despite thriving for Salzburg and Dortmund, there were hints that Haaland is likely to take some to adapt to the demands of the English game.

In the opening 45 minutes against Liverpool, Haaland only managed eight touches of the ball. He was well matched by the Liverpool duo of Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip, who constantly thrwarted him infront of goal.

His most memorable moment of the half was a gilt-edged chance which he missed as he connected poorly with a brilliant cross from the left.
