Player to watch – Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland is on course to end the season as the Premier League's top goalscorer once again but with just a handful of games left to play the Norwegian striker is under pressure from Cole Palmer, Alexander Isak, Ollie Watkins and Dominic Solanke.

The Norwegian international has scored in each of his last three league games and will be looking to add to his tally this weekend against Wolves in a match Man City are expected to win with relative ease.

Haaland has certainly gone through some poor form this season but nothing that should cause alarm as he is still only young and seems to get better and better with each season that passes.
