Pep Guardiola addresses Erling Haaland injury

Erling Haaland in doubt for City’s midweek clash against Arsenal.

The Gunners will host Pep Guardiola’s men at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.

In the game against Aston Villa, Haaland received a knock in the first half and was taken off as a precaution.

The Norwegian international has scored 25 goals in 20 games in his debut Premier League season.

City has closed the gap to three points to Arsenal and would desperately want to secure a win at the Emirates.

Manager Pep Guardiola assures the striker would be assessed over the next few days and the extent of his thigh injury is still unclear.

“Erling has a kick and we will see in the next days how he will do,” Guardiola told a news conference on Sunday.

“At halftime I spoke with the doctors and they said maybe don’t take risks at 3-0 up and I agree with the doctors. Maybe if it was more tight then I don’t do it.

“I think it is not injured but tomorrow [Monday] we will see. Maybe [he can play] Wednesday but if there is some risks he is not going to play.”
