Manchester City climbed to second place in the Premier League standings following a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Brentford. Erling Haaland silenced any doubts about his scoring prowess by securing Manchester City’s lone goal in the match, lifting them just one point behind league leaders Liverpool.

Under the guidance of Pep Guardiola, City extended their unbeaten streak to 10 league matches and are now on equal footing in games played with title contenders Liverpool and Arsenal, accumulating 56 points, one ahead of Arsenal. Meanwhile, Brentford sits comfortably five points above the relegation zone in 14th position.

Haaland, who had a frustrating outing against Chelsea three days prior, where he missed a career-high nine shots, bounced back in style, boosting his league goal tally to 17.

The Norwegian striker broke the deadlock in the 71st minute, seizing onto a sublime through ball from Julian Alvarez, elegantly slotting it past a slipping Kristoffer Ajer before confidently beating goalkeeper Mark Flekken. Remarkably, Haaland has now found the net against every Premier League opponent he has encountered, with Luton Town remaining the only side he’s yet to face.
