Manchester City start new season with a bang, Erling Haaland scores twice in 3-0 win over Burnley.
Haaland Scores Twice in Manchester City's Opening Day Victory

Manchester City kicked off their 2023-24 Premier League campaign with a convincing 3-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor. Erling Haaland stole the show with a memorable performance, scoring twice and setting up another goal for Jack Grealish.

Haaland opened the scoring in just three minutes and five seconds, the fastest goal in the opening game of a Premier League season in five years. The Norwegian striker then doubled his tally in the 25th minute with a stunning left-footed curler from outside the box. Haaland’s second goal also marked his 100th in Europe’s top five leagues, making him the second-fastest player to reach the milestone after Robert Lewandowski.
City’s dominance was evident throughout the match, as they controlled possession for long periods and created numerous chances. Grealish added a third goal in the second half to put the game beyond Burnley, who struggled to make anything of note in attack.

City won their first game and aims to defend their Premier League title and win the Champions League. Haaland’s impressive performance is a reminder of his exceptional goal-scoring abilities, making him a significant threat to opposing defenses.

Vincent Kompany, the former City captain who is now Burnley manager, will be disappointed with his side’s performance. Burnley did show some fight in the second half, but they were simply outclassed by City on the day.

The Burnley vs Manchester City clash was a good advertisement for the Premier League, and it is sure to be one of many exciting matches in the season ahead.
