'He's not human!' - Copenhagen goalkeeper complains about 'robot' Haaland after 19th goal

Haaland is crushing all the records in the Champions League and the Premier League with 19 goals already this season

Erling Haaland keeps scoring game after game

Manchester City forward Jack Grealish has joined the train in talking about the 'superhuman' qualities of his teammate Erling Haaland this season.

Haaland picked up from where he stopped on Saturday, scoring two goals in just 32 minutes in their UEFA Champions League match against FC Copenhagen at the Etihad Stadium.

His brace takes the Norwegian forward to 19 goals in just 12 matches this season, following his summer transfer from Borussia Dortmund.

England international Grealish was awarded the official man of the match award but the former Aston Villa captain had to field questions concerning Haaland's heroics.

In his post-match press conference with BTSport, Grealish admitted to never seeing anyone score goals like Haaland in his career so far.

Grealish said: "It's unbelievable honestly. I've never witnessed anything like it in my life. For the first and second goals I was just laughing.

The England international recounted an exchange he had with Copenhagen goalkeeper Kamil Grabara after Haaland's second goal in the 32nd minute.

Grabara has allegedly told Grealish that Haaland 'is not human', a statement to which the Manchester City forward agreed to.

"The keeper said to me 'he's not human!' I said 'you're telling me?" Grealish detailed his exchange with the Copenhagen goalkeeper.

Manchester City are currently first in their Champions League group, having won all three opening matches against Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla, and now Copenhagen.

The Pep Guardiola-led side are on the quest for their first Champions League trophy ever after a number of near misses in recent seasons.
