London – Manchester City's players stepped up for England's fourth title in a row with an emphatic 3-0 win at Burnley. Norwegian gunner Erling Haaland scored the opening two goals of the new season. At the age of 23, the former Borussia Dortmund striker rounded off his tally in the elite leagues to 100 goals.

Haaland started the league season the same way as last year – when he made his debut after coming from Germany, he scored two goals to win at West Ham. He finished the competition with 36 hits and became the Premier League's top scorer.

Today he scored his first goal in the 4th minute when he fired the ball into the net from a small area after Rodri's cross. In the 36th minute, Álvarez released the ball to Haaland in the penalty area, and the Norwegian striker sent the ball over the crossbar into the goal for the second time. In the end, even after the standard situation, Rodri made it 3-0.

The reason for the visitors' victory was the injury of Kevin de Bruyne, who left the field after only 23 minutes. Coach Pep Guardiola sent summer reinforcement from Chelsea Mateo Kovačič to the field for him.

The match was disrupted by one of the spectators who hit Manchester City defender Rico Lewis with a lighter in the first half. The home club announced during the match that the fan had been identified and taken out of the stadium. “Anyone who throws anything will be banned,” Burnley said.
