Similar worries for Erling Haaland, who played lackluster throughout the first half with only two harmless shots.

But the second half performance of Man City in general and Haaland in particular improved, thanks to an outstanding ball.

After Guardiola sent Ilkay Gundogan and Julian Alvarez onto the field at the same time from the 61st minute, the `monster` Haaland began to appear.
