Haaland and Rodri fire Man City to emphatic victory at Burnley

His shot took three minutes and four seconds, making it the quickest goal scored on the first day of the season since Paul Pogba struck for Manchester United against Leicester City in 2018/19.InformationGuideNigeria

After Julian Alvarez set him up in the penalty area, Haaland scored again in the 36th minute with a powerful finish into the top left corner.

After scoring a brace against West Ham United on the opening weekend of last season, Haaland became only the second player in Premier League history to score two or more goals in a team’s first match of a season in consecutive seasons, joining Didier Drogba in 2009/10 and 2010/11.

Rodri then added the icing on the cake with a close-range goal 15 minutes from time, scoring and assisting in a league match for the first time in his 236th game.JAMB Portal

Anass Zaroury was sent off for major foul play after a harsh tackle on Kyle Walker late in the game, and a straight red card was issued following a VAR review.

The only thing that could have hampered Man City’s success was an injury to Kevin De Bruyne, who was forced to leave after only 23 minutes.
