Haaland expresses frustration at being substituted against Wolves


Erling Haaland of Manchester City holds the match ball during the Premier League match between Manchester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers at Etihad Stadium on May 04, 2024 in Manchester, England. 

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland was angry at being substituted in his side's 5-1 win at home to Wolves.

Haaland had scored four goals for City during their comprehensive victory but he was replaced by Julian Alvarez in the 82nd minute.

However, the 23-year-old, who is currently leading the race for the Premier League golden boot, was adamant that he should have stayed on the pitch and looked frustrated as he took his place on the bench.

Haaland has scored 25 goals in the Premier League this season, which puts him top of the scoring charts.

Chelsea's Cole Palmer and Newcastle's Alexander Isak have both scored 20 goals each, while Aston Villa's Ollie Watkins has 19. 

Haaland had given City a 3-0 lead against Wolves, which included him scoring two penalties.

Hwang Hee-Chan got a goal back for Wolves but Haaland netted again shortly afterwards, with Alvarez then adding a fifth.

City manager Pep Guardiola claimed that Haaland was frustrated with being frequently fouled by the Wolves players.

As reported by City's official website, Guardiola said: 'There were a lot of long balls into channels that he was pulled [back] but they say it's not foul.

'I can understand the frustration when you are being pulled at the shoulder.

'It happens every game. He was a little frustrated for these actions, but I can guarantee he is so happy today.'

Following their win against Wolves, City are one point behind Premier League leaders Arsenal with a game in hand.

In their final three league fixtures of the season City will play Fulham and Tottenham away before hosting West Ham.
