Haaland delighted with hard-fought victory as City close in on Arsenal - Every game is a fight and I enjoy it

Erling Haaland, the Norwegian striker, was in a good mood after Manchester City’s hard-fought victory over Crystal Palace.

Speaking to the press after the game, Haaland expressed his delight at the three points, stating that “In the end, everything that matters is the three points, to win games and to keep performing. It’s not easy. You saw Bournemouth beat Liverpool. Every game is a fight, we fight and I’m happy.”
