On the latest episode of BBC Radio Manchester's We're Not Really Here podcast, Mike Minay and Natalie Pike are joined by City Women's defender Esme Morgan to talk about important wins at the weekend and a look ahead to potential 'revenge' against Chelsea for the men and women.

They also hear from John Stones on talk of a 'double treble'.

In the first part of the episode, the panel focus on the impact of Erling Haaland - who started his first game since recovering from injury - and Kevin de Bruyne who combined for City's second goal in the 2-0 win over Everton on Saturday.

Morgan: "I think Erling's goal that came from the corner is something we've been missing. Just someone sharp in the box when the ball comes lose to slam it away.

"The power he got on that, he nearly took [Jordan] Pickford into the net with it! Absolutely brilliant.

"No need to be concerned when Kev's on the pitch because he just places the ball so perfectly for wherever the attacker is best going to be able to finish it.

"It was just right in stride for Haaland and then he shows his ridiculous Hulk-like strength to just body [Jarrod] Branthwaite, who is a big bloke as well and was brilliant the other day.

"Haaland is just so strong and just shrugged him off before a nice little placed finish into the corner."
