INJURY UPDATES: Haaland’s ankle injury causes Man City to worry.

Erling Haaland’s ankle injury causes Man City to worry about his fitness after the striker leaves the match against Bournemouth at halftime.

Erling Haaland sustained an injury during Manchester City’s match against Bournemouth, and was replaced at halftime.

  • Haaland sustained an injury while playing Bournemouth.
  • He was replaced at the half.
  • Guardiola updated everyone on Haaland’s condition.

AHEAD OF TIME? Erling Haaland’s injury proved to be a cause for concern for the Cityzens on Saturday, even though they defeated Bournemouth 6-1 in the Premier League. The Norwegian goal machine hobbled off the field at halftime following a collision with the ground.

 

Nathan Ake, Haaland’s teammate, said on BBC’s Match of the Day after the game that he was not entirely sure of the striker’s condition but he hoped it was not too serious.

 

VERDICT: Following that, Pep Guardiola provided an update on his star player’s injury status and acknowledged that he might be sidelined for the midweek Champions League match.

 

He said, “Twist in the ankle; we didn’t want to take any chances with him because he wasn’t comfortable.” “He may return on Tuesday, but he may not return until Sunday.”

 

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Jeremy Doku, the new Cityzens signing, set two Premier League records during his memorable performance against the Cherries. At 21 years and 161 days, the Belgian became the youngest player in Premier League history to register five goal involvements in a single game with four assists and a goal. In addition, the winger made history as the youngest player to assist four goals in one game.

Next what? With three victories from their first three Champions League games, Guardiola might believe he can afford to rest the star player for Dortmund against Young Boys in their midweek match.
