Manchester City striker Erling Haaland is unconcerned with how his team play so long as they win after a 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest.

The Blues were not at their fluent best in the first half but went into the break 1-0 up as Josko Gvardiol powered home a header from a corner to the near post. Forest had their chances throughout but it was City who sealed the victory with 20 minutes to go as substitute Haaland slotted the ball underneath Matz Sels.

After the game, Roy Keane claimed that City would be concerned by how they played in the first half. He explained on Sky Sports: "They’ll certainly be concerned with the chances they gave up in the first half but listen, in the second half they were a lot more controlling and it’s not a bad option bringing players on like Haaland."

Keane went on to suggest that City will win all their remaining matches in the Premier League but still warned about not repeating their first 45 minutes. However, Haaland was less concerned than the former Manchester United captain about how his team plays at this stage.

He said: "First of all it’s a win - that’s the most important thing, it doesn’t matter how we do it. It’s good to be back.

"We know where they [Forest] are in the table so we knew it was going to be a fight. It’s not the easiest pitch to play in but we can’t complain about these things, it’s about winning a football game and that’s exactly what we did.

"Three points, get in, shower, onto the next." City are now a point behind leaders Arsenal who have played a game more than Pep Guardiola's men.
