Ahead of Erling Haaland's arrival at Manchester City, it has been claimed that manager Pep Guardiola has "made it work" with only one out-and-out centre-forward in his career.

However, Haaland's arrival has raised some questions over Guardiola's use of strikers, or the lack thereof, over the past few seasons.
Speaking to talkSPORT about the 21-year-old joining the Citizens, former England international Darren Bent said: "It'll be interesting to see the dynamic between him [Haaland] and Pep.
"When you look at Pep and centre-forwards, I know he had Lionel Messi, but the only one that he's had and it's worked is [Robert] Lewandowski at Bayern.
"Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] at Barcelona and that didn't quite work, he had David Villa at Barcelona but he put him out wide, and even towards the end with [Sergio] Aguero, he phased him out.
"So I'm not sure how Pep wants to work with a centre-forward. This is not a centre-forward who can work wide right and wide left, he is an out-and-out No. 9.
"I think it gives City a huge advantage because you're talking about a guy who scores goals every single time he steps onto a football pitch, but I'm really interested to see how Pep is going to use him."
Haaland has scored an impressive 85 goals, and assisted a further 23 strikes, in 88 appearances for Borussia Dortmund since making the move to the Bundesliga in January 2020.
