GOAL-grabbing Erling Haaland has revealed the secret of his success — special specs to help him sleep.

They filter out blue light from gadgets and the harsh glow from lamps and fridges.


The Manchester City striker, 22, who has scored 14 times already this season, puts them on in the hours before turning in to ensure he gets better quality kip.

The £51million star also avoids electronic devices two hours before bed.

Norwegian Erling said: “I wear these glasses in the evening. They help me get deeper and better sleep.

“I see this as key to improving performance by even just a few percentages. It’s a matter of mentality.”

And he also mainly drinks water and avoids sugary snacks and frozen food, opting to eat fresh produce only.
