Man City opens the season from where they left last season. With a dominating win over West Ham, and their new marquee signing Erling Braut Haaland scoring in the opening game, Pep Guardiola must be the happiest man today among the premier league coaches. Thanks to a brace coming from Man City’s new signing Erling Braut Haaland, Man City managed to record a victory of two to nil against West Ham.
Halaand Makes Dream Debut For Man City In English Football:
Erling Haaland has to make a significant effect as soon as possible after his £51 m transfer from Borussia Dortmund because he has a lot of burden on his shoulders at Manchester City this season. Ultimately, making his Premier League debut by scoring twice wasn’t a bad move.
Haaland has huge shoes to fill as he arrives from German club Borussia Dortmund to Man City this season. Also, Timo Werner failed miserably at Chelsea after coming from Bundesliga made the Man City fans worried about the Haaland transfer. Pep Guardiola asked for a lot from his new arrival as he spent the previous season without a striker. Judging by the quality Halaand has shown in the first match, Haaland is here to stay.
The Norweign’s first came from the y spot after Ilkay Gundogan recognised his deft move behind the Hammers’ defence. Haaland earned the penalty by outracing Hammers backup goalkeeper Alphonse Areola towards the ball with exceptional speed, and from the spot, he sent Areola the wrong way with a spot-on shot that nestled in the bottom right corner of the goal. His second goal, though, was a typical striker’s goal that demonstrated his quickness, agility, and fearlessness in beating the keeper in a one-on-one match. Haaland beat Areola with a left-footed shot into the far corner as he raced on to Kevin De Bruyne’s defence-splitting ball to put City ahead.
