The 22-year-old has scored 42 goals in all competitions since joining the defending champions from Borussia Dortmund at the start of the summer.

Jack Grealish was in the thick of the action on Saturday, getting a goal and assist to add to the vital interception he made to stop Mohamed Salah from scoring.

As soon as he scored his goal, he celebrated by pointing towards Haaland, who reciprocated by applauding his teammate. The two have developed a beautiful friendship in the Blue side of Manchester.

It remains unknown how long the Norwegian will be out for with a crunch of huge fixtures coming up for Manchester City.

Guardiola taunts Liverpool player

Sports Brief has also reported that Pep Guardiola savagely celebrated in front of Liverpool player Kostas Tsimikas after Julian Alvarez grabbed an equaliser on Saturday afternoon.

Guardiola had seen his side fall behind to a 17th-minute strike from Mohamed Salah, only for Alvarez to restore parity with a fine finish 10 minutes later.

As soon as his goal went in, there were crazy celebrations at the Etihad with Guardiola leading them. The Spanish manager turned on Tsimikas, who was coming back from warming up.
