For two thirds of this Etihad encounter, the visitors had proved difficult to break down, packing men behind the ball and seeking to deny City space and time.
But as so often, Haaland proved the man for the occasion, the Norwegian registering what were his first goals since late November following his two-month injury lay-off.
He made the all-important breakthrough on 71 minutes, rifling home a superb shot from the left edge of the box.
And five minutes from time the City striker struck again, coolly despatching substitute Kevin De Bruyne’s latest assist to chalk up his 16th Premier League goal of the season.
