By India Today Sports Desk: Manchester City’s Erling Haaland has issued a warning to Arsenal saying that nothing is decided yet in terms of the Premier League title after the win over Crystal Palace.
Haaland scored a penalty to help City grab all three points on the day as they cut the gap to Arsenal to two points in the table. The Gunners will be in action against Fulham on Sunday.
Speaking to City’s official website, the Norwegian striker said that the team would need to focus on themselves as they have a game against the Gunners to play as well.
Haaland said that the title race isn’t decided yet and he is enjoying the tussle with Arsenal for the crown.
“With this gap, we just have to focus on ourselves,”
“We have them (Arsenal) at home and a lot of games left to play still. Nothing is decided yet. I enjoy it (title race), this is England, this is what I’ve been watching my entire life.
“I enjoy every single second of it. It’s good to be in the middle of it,” said Haaland.
Haaland said he was proud of the result against Palace on Saturday as he feels every win is important for City at the moment.
“Of course I don’t like to miss chances. I had one in the first half that I should have scored, there was a small thing in the grass that made the ball bounce higher.
“Everyone knows how important this win is for us. We have to keep going. I say this every time, but it’s the truth.”
“I was not concerned (when it was 0-0). I just do as I do every game, focus on my game. It’s not that bad, we have to keep going. As I said it’s not easy, I’m really proud.”
“We have to play different ways. Other teams adapt to how City play, of course because in the last five years we have four Premier League (titles). That’s normal. What can I do, we just have to try to do our best and perform,” said Haaland.
