Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is worried Manchester City star Erling Haaland will face the problem of being expected to score at least three goals every game.

Haaland has scored eight goals in his last two matches, having struck five times in the Champions League against RB Leipzig in midweek before firing in three in the 6-0 victory over Burnley in the FA Cup on Saturday.

“This guy will have a problem in the future, people will expect him to score three or four goals in each game and this isn’t going to happen,” Guardiola said at a press conference.

“I know him, he doesn’t care, he’s so positive in his life so optimistic, never complain, always looks out for himself It was incredible he scored nine goals, he’s an incredible threat, a power, his joy of life is always positive, optimistic, that helps.”

Haaland has scored 42 goals in all competitions for Manchester City this season.
