Erling Braut Haaland is a Manchester City forward who was signed this summer from the German side Borussia Dortmund. The Norwegian has been on top form for the Cityzens in this campaign capping off his fine performance with a hat trick against Manchester United in the derby weekend last week. He has in total scored three hat tricks in the premier league so far.
However, of all the 8 teams he has played against in the premier league this season, Haaland failed to score against FC Bournemouth who at that time were under the English manager Scott Mathew Parker. Scott managed to control the Norwegian's hunger for goals with his back five comprising of Travers (Gk), Smith, Mepam, Kelly (captain) and Stacey.
Although he managed to get an assist at the end of the day, Parker's tactics could perhaps have paid off in stopping Haaland. Scott Parker was, however, sacked by Bournemouth's board weeks later.
Which other team do you think will manage to stop Haaland from scoring? Let's know
