Erling Haaland scored twice on his Premier League debut as Manchester City beat West Ham 2-0 at London Stadium.
A first-half penalty from Haaland was followed by a typically clinical finish when the big-money signing after the break, as the champions picked up three points from their opening game.
With Haaland seen as the striker Pep Guardiola has been lacking since Sergio Aguero’s departure, it was fitting that the new arrival became only the second City player to score a brace on his Premier League bow, with the former Argentina international being the other in August 2011.
Hammers boss David Moyes was forced to start full-back Ben Johnson at centre-back alongside Kurt Zouma, with Angelo Ogbonna, Issa Diop and new signing Nayef Aguerd all out injured.
