"Brilliant, brilliant player," Keane said on ITV Sport. "Obviously a good age, 22, he hasn't peaked yet. He's working with a brilliant team and a brilliant manager he's got all the attributes.

"You can't imagine him not scoring 20 odd goals, you just can't imagine it if he stays fit. He's obviously got the right attitude what a signing.

"Exciting? That's exactly what this young kid is. Fantastic prospect. Looking forward to watching him over the next few months."

Guardiola was asked before the clash if Haaland was ready to make his mark on the Premier League, with the Spaniard confirming that he has already settled in.

He said: "He's ready to play. And the first impression as a guy is really good. He's a funny guy.

"He's settled really well with the team and that is important. The good vibes in the locker room is more important than any advice or any other thing you can say.

"We try to get to know each other in training, we can see what we want to do and what we did in previous seasons. His quality will do the rest."
