Erling Haaland took Manchester City to within one point of Premier League leaders Liverpool but the champions were made to sweat for a 1-0 win over Brentford on Tuesday. Just two points separate the top three in a fascinating title race with Arsenal one point adrift of City with 13 games to go. Haaland was keen to make amends for a frustrating night in front of goal as Manchester City were held to 1-1 draw at home by Chelsea on Saturday.


But, the Norwegian was made to wait until 19 minutes from time to break the deadlock when he raced onto Julian Alvarez’s pass to slot in his 22nd goal of the season. Pep Guardiola left Kevin De Bruyne on the bench for the entire match as he manages the Belgian’s minutes after he missed the first five months of the season due to a hamstring injury.
