Footage of Erling Haaland mocking Ben Godfrey goes viral as pair battle at Man City and Everton

The battle between Erling Haaland and Ben Godfrey is exactly what we love to see in the Premier League.

The two played the whole game as Manchester City and Everton played out a 1-1 draw in their last game of 2022 on Saturday.

No one has quite figured out how to handle the City striker all season, his effort against the Toffees going 21 in just 15 games.

His pace and power were a nightmare for just about everyone he met.

Godfrey tried to counteract this by getting physical with him at Goodison Park and he managed to get under his skin.

Haaland even celebrated when he drew a foul from the defender, while a clip of the Norwegian striker mocking the Everton man went viral on social media.

No matter what you do, Haaland always seems to score and he was seen directing his celebrations at Godfrey after putting the ball in the back of the net.

Everton boss Frank Lampard enjoyed seeing the battle between the two players.

After the game, he said: “Two physical guys! Erling Haaland, what a player, to see him in the flesh, he is a special player. I like that side with Ben Godfrey.

Godfrey also said he enjoyed the battle, commenting: “I don’t need to tell you that Erling Haaland is a good player. I just had to do my job. Yes

“Ah of course he was [upset]. You could see his reaction. He has achieved his goal and is still causing problems for people and these are the challenges you should expect. »

Haaland was fired up the whole game and was booked for a thoughtless tackle on Vitaliy Mykolenko, which could easily have been red.

City boss Pep Guardiola said: “It’s a yellow card for Erling, definitely. 11″. I know what happened – he was a little angry from the first action on his ankle.

“But Jack Grealish was shot three or four times, nothing happened and (Haaland’s) first action was a yellow card.”

Godfrey again hinted at his ongoing battle with Haaland after the match by posting an image of the two together, with the caption: “Good point on the road, happy new year.”
