Former Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher, has hinted that he is expecting Manchester City’s Erling Haaland to topple Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry as one of the Premier League’s best-ever players.
Haaland has enjoyed a stunning start to life in the top flight of English football since his move from Borussia Dortmund.
The Norway striker has scored nine goals in his opening five appearances in the Premier League, including back-to-back hat-tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.
“I’m doing the game on Saturday at Villa Park, Aston Villa vs Man City. I’m excited to watch any game but to watch him [Haaland] in the flesh and commentate on him for the first time and really get a good look at him off the ball as well. I’m really excited to watch him.
“We know we’ve got a great player in the league but I think we’ve got something really, really special.
“When he’s finished his time at Manchester City or in the Premier League, we will be putting him alongside Thierry Henry,” Carragher said.
