Watch Erling Haaland Score First Premier League Goal By Winning And Converting Penalty Kick

It did not take Erling Haaland long to score his first Premier League goal on Sunday.

It arrived 36 minutes into Manchester City's EPL season opener away to West Ham United.

Neither side had registered a shot on target until Haaland struck to give City a 1-0 lead.

Haaland's goal came from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Hammers keeper Alphonse Areola.

And Areola looked a little rusty as he was beaten to an Ilkay Gundogan pass by Haaland, before tripping him to leave referee Michael Oliver with an easy decision.

Haaland quickly grabbed the ball, making it clear he wanted to take the penalty himself.

His confidence was well placed as he slotted the ball into the inside of the goal's side-netting.

Haaland scored again in the second half to seal a 2-0 win for City.

The 22-year-old made sure of the three points with a confident one-on-one finish after a fine Kevin De Bruyne through pass.
