Pep Guardiola believes that their new signing Erling Haaland will help them score more goals next season. Kevin De Bruyne scored four goals for the defending champions as they romped to a 5-1 win over Wolves. He has now scored eight goals in their last eight Premier League games. They moved within four points of the title with the three points.
“What can I say? In the second part of the league, he has been beyond perfect. He is a guy who is always so generous, and always has the sense to make the assist. But I think this season he has also had the sense to be prolific to score goals. He scored against Chelsea, he scored against Madrid, and he has been decisive in scoring goals. In the end, this is what makes the greatest,” Pep Guardiola said about Kevin De Bruyne. “I am very pleased for him because, of course, scoring four goals in the decisive part of the league is so important. We have spoken. Not now, but during the years. You have to arrive at the box, you have to be close to the box, and you have to score. This season was the year that he has done better and better. Hopefully, he can continue not just this year but the rest of his career.”
“Definitely, he can help us score more. It is not about that. In the end, it is about winning games,” Pep Guardiola said about Erling Haaland. “I never thought that our defensive situation depends on the central defender and I never thought that the goals we score depend on the striker. He has scored a lot of goals in his career and we are going to try to help him through the game, having more chances to score goals.”
