Erling Haaland continued his incredible story in the Premier League with a brace against Manchester United at Old Trafford. It was a sublime performance from the Norwegian, who could have easily had a hat-trick on another day if not for the brilliant performances from United goalkeeper Andre Onana.

Erling Haaland stats

The Premier League’s top scorer had five shots at goal and he was able to come up against an impressive Onana between the opposition sticks. One of the biggest positives of Haaland in this match was his movement, and United failed to keep track of the forward for most of the game. Even when United defenders were close, the striker was able to shrug them off.
