DAILY MAIL 🔵 How do Erling Haaland’s stats compare with League Two’s top scorer?

  • Roy Keane was damning in his assessment of Erling Haaland on Sunday
  • The claimed his general play wouldn’t look out of place in the fourth tier 
  • Have a day off, Pep! Guardiola’s lecture to Grealish on the Etihad pitch was unnecessary, says Ian Ladyman – It’s All Kicking Off

Roy Keane made the bold claim that Erling Haaland’s general play is the standard of a League Two player and Mail Sport has decided to explore the statement a little further.

Keane delivered a scathing assessment of Man City’s star striker after his anonymous display in Sunday’s stalemate with Arsenal at the Etihad.

‘The levels of his general play are so poor. And not just today but in general,’ Keane said on Sky Sports.

‘In terms of front of goal he’s best in the world, but his general play is so poor. He’s almost like a League Two player. That is the way I look at him. His general play has to improve.

And we thought we’d take a look at how the Premier League’s top scorer matches up with League Two’s leading marksman with some help from stats from Opta.

Notts County striker Macaulay Langstaff is the current top scorer in League Two

Notts County’s Macaulay Longstaff tops the scoring charts in the fourth tier of English football with 24 goals in 41 matches.

Haaland, meanwhile, has 18 in 24 in a season that hasn’t quite reached the heights of his stunning debut campaign.

The City man has played significantly fewer minutes (2014) and averages a goal every 112 of those.

Langstaff, who has 3604 under his belt, is going at a rate of netting every 150 minutes.

Keane’s comments were focused on Haaland’s overall play rather than his ability to put the ball in the net.

The Norwegian is averaging 23.6 touches a game this season with 6.6 of those in the opposition’s area. 

Langstaff may edge it in terms of touches (26) but a lower amount come in the area (5.4).

Both men are not particularly prone to dribbling, attempting 0.9 a match.

Haaland is much more successful when he does choose too, however, with a 47.6 per cent success rate compared to Langstaff’s 25 per cent.
