‘Amazing’ ‘Goliath Is Back’ ‘About Time’ Fans Delighted With City Ace Poised To Make Comeback Ahead Of Key Games

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has come through a full training session pain-free, according to The Times reporter Paul Hirst.

The Norwegian international has not been seen in action since early December due to a foot injury but he now looks set to return to action after the winter break.


Fans on X are understandably very happy that Haaland will make his comeback ahead of some key fixtures:

City have performed well in Haaland’s absence

Despite the 23-year-old having missed nine games in all competitions, his team have been unbeaten during that period.

City picked up 4 wins and 1 draw in the Premier League, as well as a victory over Red Star Belgrade in the final Champions League fixture. They also made it through to the fourth round of the FA Cup and lifted the Club World Cup.

Who will City face over the next month?

Pep Guardiola’s side take on Tottenham in the FA Cup on Friday evening before returning to Premier League action against Burnley on Wednesday week.

Heading into February, the Cityzens face Brentford (a) and Everton (h) before taking on FC Copenhagen in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie.

They finish the month by playing Chelsea (h), the rescheduled fixture against Brentford at the Etihad and Bournemouth (a).
