Gabby Agbonlahor has compared Erling Haaland to Didier Drogba after his explosive start for Manchester City.
The Norwegian star moved from Borussia Dortmund to City this summer for £51 million after scoring 86 goals in 89 appearances with the German side.
After successive hat-tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest, 22-year-old Haaland has already scored nine goals in five Premier League games – and former Aston Villa striker Agbonlahor has claimed defenders are already terrified of him.

He told Talk sport“Before he signed, I said, ‘If he comes to the Premier League, he’s going to wreak havoc’.
“He’s the kind of striker where defenders – you know, Drogba was so into it – where defenders were in the locker room six days earlier, like, ‘Oh, we’re playing Drogba on Saturday’. Now it’s like “We’re playing Haaland, what are we doing? I don’t know”.
“Defenders will have their central midfielders covered up front. Do you know what I mean? They will have them come and help them, they will ask the left back to come in and help them. He’s scary.

He’s not even playing at his best yet. Imagine he gets used to the team and he starts (losing weight) and gets much more involved in the game. He’s scary.’
Legendary Ivorian frontman Drogba has scored 164 goals in two spells at Chelsea, winning four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups, two Community Shields and a Champions League title.
In the 2011-2012 European showpiece, Drogba scored a powerful header in the 88th minute from a corner to equalize against Bayern Munich, before nervously scoring the winning penalty.
