Kevin de Bruyne was surprised to hear Haaland would struggle at Man City

Kevin de Bruyne and Erling Haaland has formed a formidable partnership at the Etihad.

The Norwegian striker has 20 goals and three assists to his name in 12 games this season already.

There were plenty of noise when it was expected that Haaland would struggle upon his arrival at the Etihad.

Even captain Kevin de Bruyne was confused with the noise surrounding the Norwegian forward.

“I don’t understand why people would say it would be difficult to score goals here,” De Bruyne told City’s website.

“I think we have an amazing team, we create a lot of opportunities for our strikers so if he’s there, he will score goals. I think he made a very good decision to come.”

He added: “He did it before. He’s a very good striker.

“I am very happy for him that he started the way that he started with us because obviously there was a lot of pressure coming here. But he’s fine, he’s very relaxed and he’s started well. He scores a lot of goals so he’s helping us to win games.”
