It was far from a dream debut for Erling Haaland with Manchester City.
The Norwegian striker was playing for his first piece of silverware for the Citizens, but things didn’t go his way.
For a player known for his attacking prowess, Haaland failed to make anything of his chances on Saturday.
The 22-year-old wasted a few opportunities in the opening half, but his big mistake came late in the contest.
After Adrian turned away a shot by Phil Foden, Haaland was alone with the ball at the edge of the six-yard box.
Unfortunately for Haaland and City, he fired the ball over the crossbar, capping off a disappointing day for Pep Guardiola‘s men.
Julian Alvarez impresses
Unlike Haaland, Julian Alvarez put in a strong performance on his Manchester City debut.
The former River Plate star netted his first goal for his new side, which gave them life at the time.
Guardiola will be hoping for more of that from the Argentine starlet in the future.
