Erling Haaland scored twice and made it 12 goals in seven games as Man City kicked off their Champions League campaign in style with a 4-0 win over Sevilla – and teammate Kevin De Bruyne has warned the striker will only get better.

City’s new superstar scored twice in the Group G opener with Phil Foden and Ruben Dias also getting in on the act as Pep Guardiola’s quest to win a first Champions League with the club got off to the perfect start.

“I think the way he has adapted to us is really good,” De Bruyne said about Haaland. “Outside the goalscoring there is still another part of the game and I think that part is maybe more tough to adapt to.

“But it makes it more exciting. If he can adjust to the way we play there, then the level is going to go up. That’s what we demand from him. He knows and we know we can still do better but that’s only positive.”

Haaland was on hand to convert a De Bruyne cross on 20 minutes before Foden reversed a clever second goal into the far corner after the break.

City, who were at their slick best, made the game ultra-safe on 67 minutes when Haaland tapped home after Foden’s shot was parried – his 25th goal in just 20 Champions League appearances.

Dias rounded off the scoring in injury-time in an emphatic win.

Next up for Manchester City is Tottenham on Saturday.
