Alfie Haaland reveals where Erling’s injury recovery is at ahead of Manchester City vs Liverpool

Erling Haaland withdrew from international duty after picking up a knock, here is the latest...

Erling Haaland is a doubt for Manchester City vs Liverpool due to a groin injury.

The striker suffered the knock in City’s FA Cup win over Burnley.

The champions are now sweating over his fitness ahead of their major clash with Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola’s side host the Reds on Saturday lunchtime as they look to cut the eight-point gap on Arsenal.

Haaland: “I think it’s ‘touch and go’...”

Alife Haaland has revealed that his son is “touch and go” to make the game against the Reds.

The former Man City and Leeds man also stated that Haaland is unlikely to have trained ahead of the match.

The next few days are set to be decisive to determine whether he will be fit enough to play.

Haaland revealed: “Firstly, I’m not a doctor and secondly, I think it’s ‘touch and go’ (for Liverpool), yes.

“You can’t just go two weeks without training and then jump right into a fight.

“There must be a progression there. They can gamble on it, but if he doesn’t get proper training with the team, then he won’t play…

“It is about how he responds to treatment in the next few days.

“He needs a lot of care and ‘knuckling’. There are many sprints and there is a lot to move.”
