Erling Haaland grab a brace as Manchester city cruise to victory

The 22-year-old striker needed just 36minutes to Kickstart his Manchester city league debut goal.

After being brought down inside the box by the Hammers goalkeeper Alphonse Areola , Haaland steped up to slot in his first goal of the season  before making it two(2) in the second half. 

After missing a golden opportunity in their community shield match against Liverpool last week, Haaland shut the mouth of his critic's with a brace.

Pep' s decision to sale Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal was justified, as the Norwegian striker gave us a tip of what he is made of.

After the match when he was asked by ''sky sport" whether he would have made it a hat trick,  he said "yes i should have been there to head ikay Gundogan's cross " . He was disappointed for not getting a third goal as he was substituted off with 12minutes play time to go.

Haaland will be a strong contender for the Epl top scorer this season along side the newly signed Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez,  who also scored and registerd an assist in their 2-2 draw against Fulham yesterday.

Here is what Pep Guardiola had to say after the match when asked about Haaland

"He is adapting perfectly in the way we want to play. We are going to find him more and more and hopefully we can give him the opportunity to score more goals"

He said also "of course he has talent but one week ago (against Liverpool) when he missed the chance he had people said he was a failure and that he would not adapt to the premier league and everyone laughed at him

"Now he is going (to be the next) Thierry Henry or Cristiano Ronaldo.  Takes time. It is the first premier league game,  he has a long career. When  he is going to retire, hopefully stay many years here, we will analyse what he has been".

Speaking on his quality and confidence he said,

"We know the quality he has and after that we will see. When it was a penalty he immediately took the ball and I like that. The penalty is the guy who has the confidence to do it. Is going to do it".
