Pep Guardiola emphatically defended Erling Haaland against recent criticism, asserting that the prolific Norwegian striker would "shut your mouth" with his performances.

Guardiola, addressing recent critiques and journalists, emphasized Haaland's resilience amid personal challenges, including the recent loss of his grandmother. The City manager praised Haaland's goal-scoring prowess and resilience, highlighting his ability to score against all 21 opponents he has faced in the Premier League, a feat shared only by Harry Kane.

Guardiola acknowledged that Kevin De Bruyne was sidelined due to a hamstring issue, opting not to risk the playmaker after a challenging five months recovering from injury. Haaland's goal against Brentford not only bolstered City's title aspirations but also showcased his remarkable scoring record, reaching 17 goals for the season and scoring against all Premier League opponents he has faced.


The Norwegian's performance, following a challenging period and a disappointing showing against Chelsea, silenced critics and added to his impressive tally of 53 goals in 55 Premier League appearances, emphasizing his consistent goal-scoring prowess and resilience in the face of adversity.
