Erling Haaland sends message to Manchester City supporters in light of first loss 



| Last Updated:


Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has issued a message to fans, after Saturday’s underwhelming loss to Wolves in the Premier League.

The treble-winners suffered their second successive defeat, and first loss of the Premier League campaign on Saturday afternoon, as Wolves surprisingly beat Manchester City 2-1 at Molineux.

The home side took the lead through an own goal from Manchester City centre-back Ruben Dias, and regained their one goal advantage in the 66th minute, after Hwang Hee-chan punished some calamitous defending.

Julian Alvarez had draw Pep Guardiola’s side level with a sublime second-half free-kick, however an abject Manchester City fell to defeat in the Midlands, as numerous absences due to injury and suspension massively impacted the Blues.

Manchester City have made an impressive start to the new season, but with just three clean sheets all season, defensive issues continue to impact the Sky Blues, having conceded the first goal in four of the past five matches.

Erling Haaland leads the Premier League Golden Boot race with eight goals, however the 23-year-old has scored just once in his previous three games, and failed to net against Wolves at the weekend.

The forward, who didn’t feature against Newcastle in midweek, returned to the starting side for Saturday’s meeting with Wolves, having netted a hat-trick the last time the two teams clashed in January.

Haaland took to social media after the game to send a message to Manchester City supporters following the disappointing defeat.

Writing on Instagram, the Norwegian said: “Always grateful for you support. We will learn from yesterday and make sure we do better next time.”

Manchester City return to action on Wednesday, facing RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League prior to next Sunday’s clash against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Haaland scored five goals the last time Manchester City played the Bundesliga club, helping the Blues to a maiden UEFA Champions League last season.
