‘As Long As He Plays At The Weekend’ ‘It’s Gonna Be OK People’ City Fans React To Latest Injury Update

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he is hopeful that Erling Haaland will be back to face Fulham this weekend.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday’s fixture against Sevilla, Guardiola confirmed that the Norwegian international won’t be available for the Champions League game but the striker could be ready for Saturday:

“Tomorrow he is not available. He feels better compared to Saturday and Sunday but he is not 100% and we don’t want to take a risk, it makes no sense. Hopefully he will be back for Fulham. Every day he is feeling better.”


Supporters on Twitter are not particularly bothered about Haaland’s absence for a dead-rubber European match but they are still slightly concerned about when he will return to fitness:

Haaland is believed to be recovering from ankle ligament damage, which he suffered against Borussia Dortmund last week. He has already missed one Premier League game and it does seem like he is touch and go for the match versus Fulham.

If the 22-year-old isn’t back to face the Cottagers at the Etihad, there is a strong chance that he will be given a runout against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday week instead.
