Manchester City 3-0 Burnley: Haaland fires Man City to an easy start to the season

Manchester City initiated their pursuit of an unprecedented fourth consecutive top-flight title with a commanding 3-0 triumph over newly promoted Burnley, led by Erling Haaland’s impressive brace.

Haaland, the standout performer, swiftly propelled his team into the lead a mere 184 seconds into the fresh campaign.

Despite the absence of their captain Kevin De Bruyne due to injury, the 23-year-old striker showcased his prowess with a remarkable second goal, striking the ball beneath the crossbar to amplify City’s advantage.

Rodri sealed the victory with a close-range effort, further solidifying City’s dominance. Burnley’s substitute Anass Zaroury received a contentious red card in the late stages of the match, while manager Pep Guardiola, despite the triumph, expressed his discontent and chided Haaland as they left the pitch at half-time, pushing aside a television camera in the process.

Having secured their status as treble winners and Champions League victors just two months prior, Manchester City commenced their competitive journey with a resounding victory at Turf Moor, setting their sights on the forthcoming Super Cup clash against Sevilla on Wednesday.
