    Kevin De Bruyne has offered to make an off-field assist to Manchester City team-mate Erling Haaland with a cheeky comment on his Instagram post.

    Haaland bagged both goals as Pep Guardiola’s Premier League champions got off to the perfect start on Sunday with a 2-0 victory over West Ham at the Etihad.

    The Norway international joined City in a €60m (£51.1m) deal from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund this summer and netted his opening goal from the penalty spot in the first half.

    De Bruyne provided the assist for his second, marking Haaland’s first City goal from open play, in what could become a lethal partnership this season.

    ‘About to order the whole menu,’ Haaland posted on Instagram on Tuesday, celebrating his fast start at City in what appeared to be a fancy restaurant.

    ‘You want me to hold the menu and assist you?’ De Bruyne commented, next to a laughing face emoji.

    Haaland responded with the same emoji and wrote: ‘Yes, I’m dreaming of it every night, don’t know why.’

    De Bruyne, 31, registered eight assists across 30 top-flight games last season as City won the Premier League title.

    In total, the Belgium international has 88 assists in 211 Premier League games for City.

    Haaland, meanwhile, got a little carried away following his debut double in City’s win over West Ham on Sunday, having to be bleeped out twice for swearing.

    Asked if he felt he should have got a hat-trick, Haaland replied: ‘Yeah I could. If you saw the Gundo [chance] right before I went off, I should have been there. I f***ed up but that’s how it is.’

    When interviewer Geoff Shreeves reprimanded him on his language, Haaland accidentally put his foot in it a second time, replying: ‘Oh sorry, s**t. Oh Sorry! Not good language in this country!’

    City are back in action on Saturday when they host Scott Parker’s Bournemouth.
