Haaland sustained an injury while playing Bournemouth.
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 before 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 health but he hoped it was not too serious.
Then, Pep Guardiola provided an update on his star player’s injury status and acknowledged that he might miss the midweek Champions League match.
The new addition to the Cityzens Jeremy Doku set two Premier League records during a remarkable 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.
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 fixture.
