- The defending champions will be looking up to the duo as they seek to win a third consecutive title and the Champions League
Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne took to their Instagram accounts to exchange some wholesome messages after bagging victory in their opening game of the season.
Haaland bagged a brace in his first-ever game in the Premier League after joining Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund. De Bruyne was instrumental in setting up his second goal by providing his trademark defence-splitting passes.
The Norwegian then slotted the ball past Alphonse Areola in the West Ham United goal to guarantee a 2-0 win for the defending champions.

Haaland thereafter posted an image on Instagram showing a hotel or restaurant setting. The caption read,
About to order the whole menu.
De Bruyne took cue and commented,
Do you want me to hold the menu and assist you?
Haaland then responded,
Yes, I'm dreaming of it every night. Don't know why.
The partnership between the two is widely expected to bear fruit under Pep Guardiola this season. De Bruyne is known for his crosses that often make it easy for forwards to turn them into goals, while Haaland has already established himself as a goal poacher.
Pep Guardiola reveals Erling Haaland could have beaten his teammates if they tried to take the penalty away from him
Sports Brief had earlier reported that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has disclosed his top marksman Erling Haaland's desperation to get off the mark on his Premier League debut would have seen the Norwegian punch his teammates if they had tried to stop him from taking the penalty.
Haaland, who had come under backlash for his underwhelming display in the Community Shield, needed only 36 minutes to silence his critics by opening his goalscoring account for City.
The 22-year-old Norwegian international was hacked down by Alphonso Areola in the box and elected himself to take up spot-kick duties, which he executed to perfection.
