Erling Haaland reaction to Phil Foden’s second goal vs Huddersfield is terrifying for the whole Premier League

Manchester City booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup in style by thrashing Championship side Huddersfield Town 5-0.

Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez handed City a two-goal advantage by half-time.

After the break, Ben Jackson put through his net, before Foden scored his second and Jeremy Doku netted City’s fifth and final strike as Pep Guardiola’s side emphatically reached the fourth round.

City won the FA Cup last season as part of a historic Treble achievement and began the defense of the trophy in the best possible way as they aim to win it back-to-back and defend their Premier League and Champions League crowns.

City are currently third in the Premier League and five points from the summit, with a game in hand on leaders Liverpool, having recently been away from domestic action due to being out in Saudi Arabia to win the FIFA Club World Cup.

In the victory over the Terriers, City were boosted by the return to action of talismanic playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, who notched the assist for Doku’s goal.

And watching on from the sidelines was goal machine Erling Haaland, who has recently been out of action due to injury but has returned to training.

Haaland was not risked by Guardiola in any way against Huddersfield, with City next in action next Saturday evening back in the Premier League against Newcastle United.

Foden scored his second and City’s fourth goal on 65 minutes, netting a lovely curling effort from the edge of the box after being teed up by Mateo Kovacic’s intricate backheel.

Haaland, who has 19 goals to his name so far this season, was watching on from the bench and his reaction to Foden’s second strike was captured.

The Norway international was spotted excitedly jumping up and down on the City bench, giving his full approval to what he had just witnessed.

It will not be long until Haaland is back in action for City, and with Guardiola’s side within touching distance of the top of the Premier League, with De Bruyne now back in action too, you wouldn’t bet against them returning to the summit of the top flight in due course.

The rest of the Premier League will not be relishing this prospect.
