“It was good. [It was a] Good start, nothing more to say and it was 2-0. It’s good to get a few minutes in our legs early in the season and we have to keep going,” Haaland said after the game.

“As expected, we saw the potential against Bayern [Munich in preseason] and it was a bit down against liverpool. It will come with games; today it should have been more.”

It was a bad start for substitute goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, who replaced Lukasz Fabianski in the 29th minute.

He missed the penalty just six minutes later. Haaland came into the penalty area and the goalkeeper misread the ball, knocking out the 22-year-old.

Haaland went for the penalty and put it into the net on the far left, sending Areola the wrong way.

Kevin De Bruyne scored his second goal with a superb pass from midfield that put the ball behind West Ham’s defence. Haaland ran to it and pushed it over Areola into the far corner.

“Yes. I should have been there [to connect with Ilkay Gundogan’s cross]. It’s about the connections we make every day in training and training so that we get better and that’s coming,” Haaland added when asked if he should have scored more than two goals.

“There were some good celebrations, so I’m happy. Nice that he [his father, Alfie] saw both goals because it’s a big moment for me as a debutant in this competition.

“Besides, it’s been almost 30 minutes since I scored the last goal so I have to keep going.”
