Video πŸ“Έ caught on Camera Furious Erling Haaland shoves camera out of his face after Manchester City draw with Chelsea

A obviously frustrated Erling Haaland let his emotions get the best of him as Manchester City lost at home to Chelsea, with the striker seeming to bat away a cameraman just after the game ended.

 

Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea, who are now tenth in the Premier League rankings, appeared to be on their way to a surprising victory at the Etihad Stadium after Raheem Sterling scored just before halftime.

 

Rodri, on the other hand, demonstrated his immense significance to Pep Guardiola and City by popping up to score a critical equaliser with only seven minutes remaining in normal time in the heavyweight clash.

 

Haaland was extremely wasteful in front of goal, wasting three promising chances in the tense 1-1 draw after City’s title rivals Arsenal and Liverpool both won earlier on Saturday.

 

The Norwegian’s biggest miss came in the 78th minute, when he evaded Levi Colwill’s marking and somehow headed high and wide of Dorde Petrovic’s goal from nearly point blank range.

 

Haaland has 16 goals in the Premier League this season, setting the all-time record for a single campaign – but the ex-Borussia Dortmund star appears to have left his shooting boots at home this weekend.

 

And the frustration was on full display as one cameraman got a little too near to the irritated Norway international in the aftermath of the match.

 

The win puts City four points behind league leaders Liverpool, although Guardiola’s champions have a game in hand.

 

In total, Haaland had nine shots against Chelsea, the most he’s had in a game this season without scoring.

 

However, former City and Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge defended Haaland while commenting on his performance in the Sky Sports studio, noting that forwards have ‘days where nothing goes right’.

 

Sturridge stated, “Of course, he will analyse his game when he gets home.” He’ll ask, “What could I have done better?”

 

‘A player of his level who goes onto the pitch expecting to score goals will feel bad about himself and look at himself and say, “I could have been the person who won the game for the team today!”

 

‘But this is the life of a striker. You have those days when nothing goes right.

 

‘He could have done better with his header, of course. We expect Haaland to convert such opportunities.
