Super sub Erling Haaland strikes again scoring a 94th minute winning penalty against Fulham in the Premier League to win 2-1 after Joao Cancelo was sent off in the first half.

Once again it was the Norwegian striker who stole the headlines as he came on to win the game for City after Antonee Robinson gave away a late penalty with a clumsy foul on Kevin De Bruyne, which the number nine stuck away.

Julian Alvarez opened the scoring after 17 minutes by firing a fierce effort in off the crossbar after being slipped in by Ilkay Gundogan.

Cancelo received a red card in the 26th minute as he brought down Harry Wilson in the penalty area resulting in a penalty being awarded, which Andreas Pereira scored.

Pep looked to his bench to find a winner which he thought he had done as Erling Haaland nodded home from a Kevin De Bruyne cross, but the Norweigen was marginally offside. Little did he know he’d end up getting another chance from the spot later on.

Despite being down to 10 men for a large amount of the game, Manchester City dominated the match in a typical Pep fashion.

Even with the man advantage Fulham had limited opportunities with Manchester City being very effective with their press rarely allowing the visitors into their half.
