EPL: Haaland Scores As Manchester City Win 1st 2022/23 Season Match

Erling Haaland scored twice as Manchester City won their first match of the 2022/23 Premier League Season match.

The Cityzens were away to West Ham.

Haaland scored a penalty in the first half to give City a 1-0 lead over West Ham at half-time.

The Hammers made the brighter start, with Antonio coming close with an early header, but it was too high. City dominated after that though and had the ball in the back of the net thanks to De Bruyne, but it was ruled out for an offside in the build-up.

Haaland was then tripped by substitute goalkeeper Areola, who came on for the injured Fabianski, and the Norweigan slotted home the resulting penalty.

Haaland scored again after a move that started deep in City’s half, with Rodri picking out De Bruyne in space down the right.

He slid it between West Ham’s defenders, putting it on a plate for Haaland, and he slotted it under Haaland and into the back of the net to make it 2-0 in favour of the visitors.

Meanwhile, Manchester United lost their first match to Brighton and Hove on Sunday afternoon. They lost 2-1 and only got their consolation goal in the 68th minute through Alexis Mac Allister’s own goal.

Cristiano Ronaldo started from the bench.

Earlier, Leicester City shared the spoils with Brentford at King Power Stadium following a 2-2 draw.
