Erling Haaland, the brilliant 22-year-old striker from Norway, was already locked in as one of the Premier League’s most impressive newcomers this year. His performance for Manchester City on Saturday continued a hot start for the young star.
City got an early scare from Crystal Palace at the Etihad, surrendering a John Stones own goal in the fourth minute, and a header from Joachim Andersen midway through the first half. The second half was all City, with Haaland stealing the show.
After Bernardo Silva cut the Palace lead to one in the 53rd minute, Haaland followed it up with the tying goal less than 10 minutes later.
