EPL: Man City players ignored Haaland during 1-0 defeat to Tottenham – Gary Neville

 Former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville has criticised Manchester City’s players for failing to spot Erling Haaland’s runs during their poor performance against Tottenham.

City lost 1-0 thanks to Harry Kane’s 267th goal for Spurs.

The goal saw Kane surpass Jimmy Greaves as the club’s record scorer.

Riyad Mahrez came closest to scoring for City, with his effort coming off the crossbar.

Haaland was kept unusually quiet as he was starved of service.

Neville pointed this out on Sky Sports, hitting out at City’s players for “ignoring” Haaland’s runs in-behind the Spurs defence and along the channels.

“Haaland is making the runs, he is ready to go, they (City players) are just not playing them,” Neville said.

“The amount of runs he makes that get ignored is incredible.”
