Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side dropped two points on Saturday after drawing 1-1 away at Nottingham Forest, but Haaland had the opportunity to kill the game off in the 66th minute when they held a one-goal lead.
Keylor Navas denied Phil Foden before Haaland‘s effort on the rebound crashed against the crossbar. Haaland saw the ball return to him but he didn’t manage to hit the target, sending the ball over the bar.
The Norway international failed to seal the victory, with Chris Wood netting late in the game off the bench to help Forest snatch a point.
Following Arsenal‘s 4-2 win at Aston Villa, the Gunners are back on top of the Premier League table, sitting two points above the Sky Blues.
It’s so tight that this double miss might end up proving to be decisive.
