Erling Haaland Snags Brace to Guide Manchester City to 0-2 on His Premier League Debut | Watch Highlights
Erling Haaland has gotten off to a blazing start as he scored a brace on his Premier League debut as Manchester City beat West Ham United 2-0 at the London Stadium on Sunday.
As reported by ESPN, Haaland, who has scored his side’s opener for the third season in a row, scored from a penalty in the first half and then a made a well-timed run in the second half for his second goal.
It was a horror start for substitute goalkeeper Alphonse Areola who replaced Lukasz Fabianski on 29 minutes.
He gave away the penalty just six minutes later. Haaland arrived in the box and the goalkeeper mistimed his challenge for the ball, taking out the 22-year-old.
Haaland stepped up to take the penalty and fired it into the far left of the net, sending Areola the wrong way.
His second goal came from a sublime pass from midfield from Kevin De Bruyne who put the ball in behind the West Ham defence. Haaland ran onto it and slid it across Areola and into the far corner.
