Guardiola reveals Haaland injury concern ahead of Leicester City clash


Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said Erling Haaland “feels better” after suffering a knock to his foot against Borussia Dortmund.

However, the Norway striker still needs to be assessed before their Premier League clash with Leicester on Saturday.

Haaland, who has netted 17 goals in 11 Premier League appearances this season, was taken off at half-time of City’s 0-0 draw with Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old is also suffering from illness and fatigue.

“He feels better but we will train this afternoon and we will assess in a few hours.

“We will see how he feels in his foot and after we will decide.

“I will know in two hours if he’s able to play or not,” Guardiola told the media on Friday.

Victory for the champions will take them above Arsenal on the table.

The Gunners host Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
