Kevin De Bruyne produced a moment of magic to score against Arsenal as Manchester City took the lead in stunning style.
John Stones picked out Haaland with a long pass, with the Norwegian bringing the ball down impeccably as he held off Rob Holding.
He then played a pass into the path of the Belgium midfielder, who ran through on goal before firing a sensational low strike into the back of the net.

Fans online loved the link-up between Haaland and De Bruyne for Man City's opening goal.
One Twitter user wrote: "Class hold up play by Haaland! Great finish from KDB!"
A second tweeted: "This is such a beautiful goal."
A third sarcastically added: "Haaland is just a goal poacher though? Doesn’t link the play apparently?"
A fourth said: "These two are an absolute cheat code."
Another commented: "That touch from Haaland is a joke by the way."
It's fair to say De Bruyne loves playing against Arsenal, having scored more goals against the Gunners (7) than any other club in his career.
