Man City held to a draw after Haaland’s fastest goal record at the Etihad

Erling Haaland became the fastest player to net 50 goals in the Premier League history after netting City’s only goal in the 1-1 draw against Liverpool at the Etihad.

Trent-Alexander Arnold’s equaliser ensured the points were shared at the Etihad Stadium. The hosts took the lead after a pass from Alisson to Mohamed Salah stopped halfway getting into the hands of Manual Akanji who had his way through the middle of Alexander-Arnold and Dominic Szoboszlai before setting a perfect pass to Erling Haaland who released an effort to the bottom corner.

This wasn’t the first error of the day from the Liverpool goalkeeper who had earlier misplaced a pass to Phil Foden but was lucky enough to make a save making up for his mistake.

Remarkably, this was the sixth consecutive Premier League game which Liverpool conceded the opening goal but the Reds’ were again without result in front of goal. A chance for City to take the lead appeared after Ruben Dias released a strike but was ruled as a foul on Allison by Manuel Akanji by the referee.

The deadlock was broken for the visitors when Mohamed Salah found Alexander-Arnold from the edge of the box with the Englishman releasing a powerful strike to the bottom left corner.

City still sit at the top of the Premier League table with just a point ahead of Liverpool after a thrilling decisive Premier League title game.
