Haaland back in the groove with double as Man City win at Burnley

Manchester City’s Erling Braut Haaland wasted no time in scoring two goals as the champions began their title defense with a 3-0 victory against Burnley at Turf Moor. Haaland, who scored a record-breaking 36 goals in the Premier League last season, put City in front after four minutes. He then scored a stunning goal in the 36th minute to put City in control. The only negative for City was an injury to Kevin de Bruyne, who was forced off in the first half. Rodri sealed the victory for City with a goal in the 75th minute. Burnley’s misery was compounded when substitute Anass Zaroury was sent off in stoppage time. Haaland’s performance proved that he is ready to continue his impressive form from last season.

City started the match well, finding an early goal. However, they struggled at times, giving away possession. Despite this, they improved as the match went on. Guardiola acknowledged the team’s early struggles but praised their overall performance.

Haaland’s first goal was a typical poacher’s goal, taking advantage of a headed pass from Rodri to score. Burnley responded well to the early setback and had a chance to equalize but missed the target. De Bruyne was substituted due to injury, but City continued to dominate the game. Haaland scored his second goal with a clinical curling effort. In the second half, City managed the game effectively, controlling possession and tiring out Burnley. Rodri scored City’s third goal from a set-piece. Haaland was substituted late in the match, and City also gave a cameo appearance to new signing Josko Gvardiol. Burnley’s night was marred by an incident where an object was thrown at City’s Rico Lewis, for which the club later apologized. Kompany, Burnley’s manager, acknowledged the defeat but expressed confidence in his team’s progress.

In conclusion, Manchester City’s Erling Haaland made an immediate impact in the new Premier League season, scoring two goals in a 3-0 victory against Burnley. City showed their strength as defending champions and sent a warning to their rivals. Haaland’s performance demonstrated his ability to continue his impressive goal-scoring form. City’s victory was marred by an injury to De Bruyne and an incident of misconduct from Burnley’s fans. Despite the defeat, Burnley’s manager remains optimistic about his team’s progress.
