Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes Manchester City duo Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne have a special connection.

Guardiola said: “I think the connection between Erling and Kevin is obvious.

“I think Kevin needs the runners to do his biggest quality and Erling needs an assist player to make his positive runs. It’s a natural way.

“We talk a lot about ‘take a look at him when he runs and put the ball there’ because when the ball is correct and he has this space, he is unstoppable. We know it.

“But they have a special connection and you can see this.

“But what I like about that second goal is Kevin won the duel. I love that.

“He won the duel and after that, the run and finish from Erling was fantastic.”
