A well-worked corner routine allowed the treble winners to open up their newly-promoted opponents at Turf Moor.

After a series of passes, Kevin De Bruyne’s lofted cross was nodded back across goal by Rodri.

His knockdown fell perfectly for Haaland to sweep the ball past James Trafford and into the bottom corner.

Fans were far from surprised to see the prolific forward on the scoresheet already this season.

Taking to social media to react to the goal, one supporter wrote: “Big whoop Haaland scores. Water is wet.”

Another tweeted: “That didn’t take long.”

A third fan joked: “He’s so annoying.”

Meanwhile, one more also commented: “Did we expect anything less?”


Fans were left saying ‘water is wet’ after Haaland’s goal

Haaland’s goal was his 37th in the Premier League since signing from Borussia Dortmund last summer.

The 23-year-old bagged 36 times in the league last season as he claimed the golden boot in a record-breaking debut campaign in England.

He also won the treble with City as he netted 52 times across all competitions.

However, he had been on something of a dry spell in front of goal going into the trip to Burnley.

Prior to his goal, Haaland had gone six matches without scoring, dating back to last season.
