Pep Guardiola not concerned about Haaland's goal drought

Pep Guardiola, Manchester City manager, has issued a crucial injury update on star striker Erling Haaland, who was substituted early during the team’s recent 6-1 win over Bournemouth. Since joining City from Borussia Dortmund, the Norwegian prodigy has been an essential player, scoring over 50 goals in all competitions last season and led the team to an unprecedented treble-winning season.

However, when Haaland was pulled just before halftime due to what appeared to be a minor ankle twist. This injury has the potential to derail City’s ongoing title challenge, especially given their recent early-season losses, including one to Arsenal.

“Twist in the ankle. We didn’t want to take risks with him. He didn’t feel comfortable,” Guardiola said.

“He’ll be back maybe Tuesday, but maybe next Sunday.”

The timing of Haaland’s injury is critical, with a match against Chelsea coming. His absence might help Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino, as Haaland’s goal-scoring prowess is typically a struggle for rival sides.

Manchester City fans will be watching Guardiola’s injury report attentively as the squad looks to retain their momentum and remain at the top of the Premier League title race.
