Pep Guardiola faces a nervous wait ahead of Manchester City’s Premier League clash with title rivals Liverpool, as the Blues’ injury worries worsen.
City have already been without star striker Sergio Aguero since mid-January, and it now appears that they could potentially be without teenage sensation Erling Haaland for their visit to Anfield on Sunday.
Haaland, 19, suffered a knock during City’s 1-1 draw with West Brom last weekend, and has since been ruled out of their midweek FA Cup clash with Cheltenham.
The Norwegian international has been in sensational form for City since his move from RB Salzburg in January, scoring eight goals in eight appearances for the club.
Guardiola will now be hoping that the injury is not serious, with the former Borussia Dortmund man a key part of his side’s strike force.
City have also been without influential midfielder Kevin de Bruyne for much of this season due to a knee injury, and his absence has been keenly felt.
City’s injury woes come at a particularly bad time, as they face a crucial clash with Liverpool on Sunday. The Reds currently sit at the top of the Premier League table, four points ahead of City.
A win at Anfield would be a huge boost for Guardiola’s side, and they will be hoping that Haaland has recovered in time to make a difference.
The 19-year-old’s availability could be key to City’s chances of success, and Guardiola will be nervously awaiting news of his condition ahead of the match.
