Erling Haaland destroys Trent Alexander-Arnold with Treble response to Manchester City success comments



| Last Updated:


Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has destroyed Trent Alexander-Arnold with a brutal response to the England international’s comments on the Etihad side’s success.

The Liverpool academy graduate hit out at Manchester City and their fans’ appreciation of their club’s success over the last 15 years, whilst also hitting out at the spending power of Abu Dhabi in the north-west city.

Alexander-Arnold said of Manchester City, “Although they’ve won more titles than us and have probably been more successful, our trophies will mean more to us and our fanbase because of the situations at both clubs, financially.

“How both clubs have built their teams and the manner in which we’ve done it, probably means more to our fans.”

Now, responding to the comments in an interview with Sky Sports, Erling Haaland has responded to the claims from this weekend’s opponent, in a perfect set-up for the ultimate showdown at Anfield in an enthralling Premier League title race.

The Manchester City striker said, “If he wants to say that, OK. I’ve been here one year and I won the treble. It was quite a nice feeling. I don’t think he knows exactly this feeling.”

Discussing the talk from their Anfield opponents, Haaland continued, “They (Liverpool) can talk as much as they want, or he (Trent Alexander-Arnold) can talk as much as he wants… I don’t know why he does that, but I don’t mind.”

Erling Haaland is anticipating another hotly-contested title race during the business end of this season, and believes that a number of clubs have the ability of lifting the infamous English top-flight title come May.

“I think there’s so many who can win the Premier League, and in the last years it’s been Manchester City and we’re going to try and do it again,” Haaland said. “It’s not going to be easy, but we are good!”

The 23-year-old is once again in a fine run of form for the Premier League champions, notching in the recent Manchester derby to follow-up from his five-goal haul against Luton Town in the FA Cup.

Manchester City know that victory against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon will move them to the top of the Premier League table by two points, in a title race that is currently being contested by the north-west giants and Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.
