He could have scored more but Pep Guardiola subbed him off in the 78th minute to keep him fresh for next week's home bow against Bournemouth.

Prior to Haaland, Sergio Aguero had been the only player in Man City history to score two goals on his Premier League debut.

Aguero netted twice as a substitute as his City career began with a 4-0 win against Swansea in August 2011.

The Argentina striker went on to net another 258 goals for City, making him the club's all-time record scorer.
