Jamie Carragher believes Erling Haaland chose the wrong club in as their style of play cannot get the best out of the prolific forward.

The Norwegian had a frustrating afternoon on Sunday as he contributed almost nothing in Tottenham’s 1-0 win over the Premier League champions in north .

The 22-year-old has had an amazing start to life in the Premier League, scoring 25 goals in his first 20 league games, but City are struggling for their best form and defeat to Spurs leaves them five points behind Arsenal at the top of the table.

Carragher feels that City are not as good a side with Haaland in it and he cannot show off his best qualities under Guardiola, despite his mammoth goal tally.

‘I think we’re only seeing 60 per cent of ,’ Carragher said on . ‘He’s come from Borussia Dormund and a counter-attacking league where it’s end-to-end, you see that blistering pace he’s got, but we don’t see it [now].

‘He may have actually picked the wrong club to get the best out of him. We’re not seeing everything of Erling Haaland.

‘He’s scored 25 league goals but Manchester City as a team have scored the same amount of goals, but they’ve conceded more and it’s far easier to counter-attack them as well.

‘They’re a different team and a lesser team with Erling Haaland in the team, but it’s not his fault.

‘Manchester City as a team will not play end-to-end football, it’s not Pep Guardiola’s way, they build up slowly, push the opposition back to the edge of the box and play from there.

‘Erling Haaland will still score 25 league goals but we’re not seeing the full package of what this player can do because of the team he’s gone to.’
