Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has expressed his delight with the summer arrival of Erling Haaland and acknowledged the striker adds a new dimension to his team.

However, the Catalan admitted the onus in now on the rest of the team to help the best out of the him.

Guardiola said: “Erling scoring the two goals, it’s important for him and the team and for us and it’s another weapon we have now.

“But at the same time he’s not going to solve all our problems, he’s going to add something to us as a team. That’s what we are looking for.

“Today, the two goals they were balls in front the centre of defence and we had the feeling we could find him more.

“In the past we didn’t have a reference like him and now have it again but at the same time the guys have to put the ball there, especially in transitions.”

“It was an incredible second goal and incredible action from Jack.

“The ball was fed to him, he keeps the ball and attracts the opponents and found a pocket and when this happens with Kevin, with one guy, it’s difficult to stop.”
