He then took the ball past Seagulls keeper Robert Sanchez, shrugged off Webster and fired into an empty net.

And fans are saying Haaland bullied Webster and made him “look like a school child”.

Haaland’s dual with the centre-back has also been likened to doing battle with Italy’s little man Lorenzo Insigne.

A fan said on Twitter: “The way Haaland pushes Webster is too funny.”

Another said: “Is there any footballer stronger than Erling Haaland? Just threw Webster out of his way effortlessly.”

The goal also left Alan Shearer purring.

He said: “What a goal. Pace. Power & strength and a neat finish @ErlingHaaland not a bad pass from Ederson either!!!!”

Haaland then secured a brace before half-time from the penalty spot.

Although, the decision to award the spot-kick was controversial.

Haaland left Sanchez rooted to the spot and picked out the bottom right corner.

His two goals at the Etihad takes his total to 22 for the season across all competitions.

An astonishing 17 of those strikes have come in the Premier League.

Haaland’s brace is also the seventh time he has scored two or more goal in one game this season.

Midfielder Kevin de Bruyne scored City‘s third to restore a two-goal lead after Leandro Trossard pulled a goal back for Brighton.
