EPL: He’s icing on the cake in Champions League – Carragher speaks on Man City’s new signing


Former Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher has said Erling Haaland will not be a game-changer for Manchester City in the Premier League title race.

However, he has backed the Norway striker to help his new club end their wait for Champions League glory.

Haaland joined City for £51million from Borussia Dortmund this summer and there is much excitement about the impact that he can make.

However, Carragher claims that Haaland won’t necessarily tip the balance in terms of the Premier League as Pep Guardiola’s men are already capable of winning the title without him.

“I think Haaland will be the icing on the cake in the Champions League. If he’s playing away in Madrid they don’t lose that game, they win, they’re through to the semi-final, the final and I think that’s the difference Haaland will make. I don’t think he’s be a huge difference in the league because City are that good anyway,” Carragher told talkSPORT.

City have won the league title in four of the last five seasons.

Only Liverpool were able to stop them in the 2019/2020 campaign.
