Erling Haaland who made a name for himself as one of the best modern strikers did incredibly in his first season with Manchester City. He scored 51 goals in 52 games last campaign as Man City won a historic treble, therefore, his first season in England can be described as successful.

His limited game time due to injuries wouldn’t allow him to replicate what he did last campaign. However, he has managed to put the ball in the back of the net 19 times in 24 appearances for Man City in all competitions.

The prolific striker will hope to be on the score sheet on Saturday against Everton and it would have been a great encounter for him if the annoying throw-in rule would not be applicable during the match.

“What annoys me is the throw-ins,” Erling Haaland said in a recent episode of the Manchester City podcast.

“I’d change that – just have two hands on the ball. We will see what happens in the future but you need a certain time limit to take throw-ins and you cannot take too many metres – just give a mark and you can only go there.”

He continued: “If you throw like this or this or whatever, it doesn’t matter.

“Just have two hands on the ball and throw the ball. I don’t know the rules even, but if you throw down or up it doesn’t matter!”
