Erling Haaland has been struggling with a slight ankle issue which has stopped him from training with Manchester City.

The striker missed the weekend’s clash against Leicester City in which the champions just about got over the line.

Pep Guardiola has today been speaking about the Norwegian’s fitness ahead of games against Sevilla and Fulham.

Pep: “Every day he feels better but is still not 100 percent”

Guardiola has revealed that Haaland will not be available to face Sevilla on Wednesday evening.

The 22-year-old has not been training with the rest of the team due to the ankle injury.

The Spanish coach admitted that he does not want to take any risks with his top goal scorer.

Guardiola said: “He feels better...

“Comparing Saturday, Sunday and Monday, every day he feels better, but still he is not 100 percent.

“We do not want to take any risks, it makes no sense.”

However, it looks like it will be good news for his availability against Fulham on the weekend.

City host the Cottagers at 3pm and Guardiola is hopeful of having him back for this match.

Pep added: “Hopefully we can have him against Fulham.”
