Pep Guardiola praised Erling Haaland after missing a sitter last night.
The Norwegian attacker struck home 12 minutes before the final whistle to seal the game for the Cityzens last night against Crystal Palace.
This took Haaland’s Premier League goal tally to 28 goals, eight goals ahead of Harry Kane who is right behind him.
Haaland’s second-half penalty was enough to clinch a hard-fought win over Crystal Palace.
They have now moved within two points of Premier League leaders Arsenal.
“One of the best things of knowing him well together is he can miss one chance and he won’t get depressed, or he’s not sad. And he’s positive – next one,” said Guardiola.
“He knows he will have the chance and he’ll be there. That’s an incredible attribute as a football player and as an athlete.
“This guy doesn’t score one or two goals and the people go, oh he’s not the same! He is always there so the numbers speak for itself.”
