Manchester City could be set for a huge boost for their clash against Liverpool this weekend.

Superstar striker Erling Haaland had picked up an ankle injury over the international break, causing him to miss Norway’s game against Scotland.

But despite having to return to Manchester early, Haaland is now set to be fit for the top of the table clash against the Reds, which is live on talkSPORT.

Speaking at his press conference, Man City boss Pep Guardiola said on his striker: “He trained yesterday with some niggles but today we have the last training and hopefully he can be part of it.”

Haaland has netted 13 goals in 12 league games this season and will no doubt be looking to extend his outrageous Premier League goal scoring record against Liverpool.

The ex-Borussia Dortmund star wasn’t the only Man City player to pick up an injury over the international break.

Goalkeeper Ederson also picked up a minor injury which resulted in him pulling out of Brazil’s squad. However, he did return to training this week.

Mateo Kovacic, Nathan Ake and Matheus Nunes all have had setbacks of their own, too.

 Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones and Sergio Gomez are also out with long-term injuries.

“We have a few problems, like many, many clubs,” Guardiola said on Friday.
