Thierry Henry breaks down big mistake Erling Haaland is making at Man City as he says 'he doesn't help the team' | The Sun

ARSENAL legend Thierry Henry has offered Erling Haaland some pointers on how he can improve.

Haaland, 22, signed for Manchester City in the summer and has scored 31 goals in 29 games in all competitions already.

Despite his outrageous form, he has come under scrutiny from some for how isolated he can be in matches.

Premier League and Arsenal legend Henry has revealed how the Norwegian can improve, with the Frenchman revealing the advice was a special pointer from Arsene Wenger during his own career.

Speaking on CBS Sports Golazo's coverage of the Champions League, Henry said: "We all know [if] you put the ball in the box, you feed him, you are dead.

"In the air, on the ground, whatever it is he [Haaland] will score.

"But there is one piece of advice that Arsene Wenger gave me when I was playing: 'What can you do when your team is not feeding you?'

"We all know when Kevin De Bruyne has the ball, Kevin can find him in any way, so Arsene told me: 'Ask yourself the right question, do you think Dennis Bergkamp can give you the ball the same way Freddie Ljungberg does?'"

Henry went on to detail how the players around him such as Robert Pires and Ljungberg liked to play and how he could complement them with his runs.

He then added: "I thought how can I enhance the skills of a player instead of showing his weaknesses.

"So for example, Kevin [De Bruyne] you can make that [far post run] but maybe Bernardo Silva likes a one-two.

"I think sometimes Haaland is making the same run whoever is on the ball… and sometimes he doesn't help the team in terms of who is on the ball."

Haaland was a doubt for Man City's top of the table clash against Arsenal this evening but has recovered in time to be in the squad.

However, Thomas Partey is set to miss the game after picking up a muscular injury.

It is set to see Jorginho come into the starting XI make his full debut.

Henry was also flabbergasted after learning how much fellow CBS pundit Micah Richards spends on his hair.
