Ammon News - Manchester City kept up the pressure on Arsenal after Erling Haaland converted a second-half penalty to secure a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Haaland spurned a great chance in the first half but calmly converted from the spot in the 78th minute after Michael Olise clumsily clattered into Ilkay Gundogan in the area.

The win brought City within two points of leader Arsenal ahead of the Gunners’ visit to Fulham on Sunday, while Palace are still looking for a first victory of 2023.

"Three points and to win games and to keep performing, it's not easy. Bournemouth beat Liverpool earlier so every game is not easy, it is a fight," Haaland told Sky Sports.

"Nice stadium and a good game and I enjoy it. It's my job and I enjoy it. Everyone knows how important this win is for us and we have to keep going.

"We have to play different ways. People adapt as a team and how people play. Last five years at City there have been four Premier Leagues and we have to adapt and try our best to perform.
