Liverpool can stop Haaland at the Etihad with the help of their English star.


Liverpool can stop Manchester City from proceeding further towards the premier league title. They can do so by defeating the blues when they face the hosts at the Etihad stadium. Moreover, a win for Liverpool would see them become the table toppers. The Reds are back in their form and are fighting for the top spot. Although Pep Guardiola has no shortage of silverware in his trophy cabinet, he’d still be aiming for a win on Saturday. The Spaniard has won 14 honours for the club and is in no mood to stop. On the other side, Jurgen Klopp has also won 6 titles across all competitions for Liverpool. They both would be giving in all that they’ve got to win on Saturday.

The major threat for the Reds in this match is going to be Erling Haaland. The Norwegian is heading the charts in the league with 13 goals to his name so far. He is a pure threat to the opponent’s defence. The 6 foot 3 inch striker knows how to use his physicality and speed to create ruckus in the opponent’s box.

As per footballfancast, Haaland doesn’t have a very strong record against Liverpool. He’s scored only twice in the 5 clashes that he’s played in. Moreover, presence of Van Dijk and Joe Gomez at the back line is surely gonna give a hard time to the goal machine.

How Liverpool can stop Erling Haaland with the help of Joe Gomez?

Surprisingly enough, Joe Gomez has had a good record against Erling Haaland during last season’s clash. He was not even dribbled past once. He completely dismantled City’s attack and because of this performance, Liverpool came out victorious with a scoreline of 1-0.

Moreover, the 26 year old English international is ranked among the top 7% of his positional peers across Europe’s top 5 leagues. He has got pace, precision and composure and that’d help him manage the defensive unit of his team alongside Virgil Van Dijk.
