Erling Haaland against Crystal Palace: Is he ready to start for Man City? latest injury news and FPL information

Erling Haaland has not appeared in either of Manchester City’s previous two games. Pep Guardiola will be hoping the prolific Norwegian is healthy enough to start on Saturday’s Premier League match against Crystal Palace.

 

Star striker Erling Haaland may be sidelined for Manchester City’s Premier League match against Crystal Palace on Saturday. Due to a foot injury, the prolific forward has missed the Cityzens’ last two games against Red Star Belgrade and Luton Town.

 

The former Borussia Dortmund player was experiencing a “bone stress reaction in his foot,” according to Pep Guardiola. Although it was anticipated that he would resume training on Thursday, Man City supporters’ concerns were not allayed by a mysterious post on Haaland’s Instagram.

Man City, who are currently fourth in the Premier League standings, suffers from Haaland’s problem. Aston Villa is in third place, while Arsenal is in second place, only one point behind Liverpool in first. But if City defeats Palace on Saturday, they will aim to close the deficit to one point against Jurgen Klopp’s team. Having said that, football.london examines Haaland’s potential to play for City at Etihad Stadium.

What is known about the injury sustained by Haaland?

When questioned last week, Guardiola said he didn’t know how long Haaland would be out but hoped he would be ready for their first Club World Cup game in Saudi Arabia the following week. Prior to the Luton game, Guardiola stated that the injury.

Guardiola remarked, “We will see what happens week by week, day by day.” “Erich has been invaluable since his arrival. However, we witness this kind of thing during the season. Problems, suspensions, injuries—we must adjust.”

After City defeated Red Star Belgrade 3-2 on Wednesday, the former Barcelona manager hinted that the player might play again soon. At a press conference, the City manager said to the press, “I believe he will return on Thursday.” We’ll watch his mood. I could be more specific at the next press conference, but I don’t know when he will return just yet.

Guardiola has relied heavily on Haaland during his tenure in England. In addition to the 52 goals he scored in his City debut season, Haaland has scored 19 goals this season. Mateo Kovacic, a 23-year-old midfielder, asked his colleagues to step up their game while he is out.

Following the victory at Luton, Kovacic remarked, “Obviously we missed key players like Erling and Kevin; it’s never easy when you miss such big players.” “But they are not here right now; in order for us to win games, everyone needs to give 10, 20, or even more like we did on Sunday.”

 

Will Haaland be able to play in Gameweek 13 against Burnley?

Naturally, Haaland (£14 million)’sFantasyPremier League managers will be hoping he’s healthy enough to start Man City vs. Crystal Palace. Between now and Friday at 6:30 p.m. (GMT), when Gameweek 17 ends, millions of managers will have to decide whether or not to trade the forward, who is owned by 79% of them in the game.

 

The striker has a 50% chance of playing against Palace, according to the FPL website. In the event that managers decide to move Haaland, Ollie Watkins (£8.5 million), Dominic Solanke (£6.6 million), and Julian Alvarez (£6.9 million) are some of the most well-liked alternatives.

 

Guardiola is scheduled to address the media once more on Friday, and it is likely that the Spaniard will give another update regarding Haaland.
