Haaland also played a part in Jack Grealish’s goal for 2-1, ushering in Ilkay Gundogan who made the final pass before he rammed home the clincher after a De Bruyne pull-back. He came off at half-time during Sunday’s 3-1 win against Aston Villa after pulling up with likely a thigh injury during the opening 45 minutes.

Recently, Marcus Rashford has been celebrating his goals by standing still and pointing at his temple with his index finger. This is rumored to be an indication of the player’s progress in relation to his mental health.

In October last year, Rashford revealed that he had struggled with his mental health during the 21/22 season. “I was struggling at times with more mental things. It wasn’t really my own performance but other things off the pitch. That’s the biggest difference from last season. Too often last season, I wasn’t in the right headspace for games. I wasn’t surprised by some of the stuff that was happening,” the Manchester United star said.
