Manchester City Manager, Pep Guardiola has given an update on the fitness of Erling Haaland ahead of City’s game against Fulham.
On Haaland’s fitness, Guardiola said;
“He’s much better. We will decide today (if he can play against Fulham).
“It’s a good step, he starts to train, and we have training this afternoon and we will see.”
According to Guardiola, considerations that will be taken before deciding if Haaland will return will depend on himself, Haaland’s opinion and that of the doctors. These considerations he went on to say, will determine if Haaland will play 90 minutes or less.
The final decision will be taken after training today.
Haaland has been absent since coming off at the break against Borussia Dortmund last month and has missed the games against Leicester and Sevilla with a foot injury.
In just 13 matches this season, Haaland has scored 17 goals and assisted 3.
