Erling Haaland's Barnsley accent - how Norwegian scoring sensation takes off team-mate John Stones

We know he was born in Leeds, we know he scores goals for fun for Manchester City – but did you know Erling Haaland can speak in a Barnsley accent?

Both players were in the goals at the weekend as City beat Leicester City 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium to move to within four points of leaders Arsenal with a game in hand.

The prolific Norwegian’s double saw him level with the competition’s record of 32 goals for a 38-game season.

Haaland’s brace came after a superb early strike from John Stones and all but wrapped up a victory for City.
