Man City drops hint of Erling Haaland’s return ahead of clash vs PL point leader Arsenal

Manchester City will visit the Emirates stadium, in London, to face the league leaders Arsenal on February 15 in a crucial Premier League game in terms of title contention and now they have good news ahead of the game as Erling Haaland could be fit.

Haaland picked up a knock that forced him off the field during the half time against Aston Villa and the Citizens are sweating over his fitness ahead of the most anticipated Arsenal clash.

However, Pep Guardiola will be relaxed after seeing his star performer is back in training following the knock, and the Norwegian is set to back in action which will give Man City a major boost.

“Right now I don’t know. We will have to see over the next few days,” Guardiola admitted before the press conference after winning the Aston Villa game by 3-1.

“He got a knock and was uncomfortable so at 3-0 up we didn’t want to take the risk. We will assess him and if he’s not ready we will play someone else. Hopefully, he is ready.”- the Spanish-born manager further added.

Erling Haaland is very crucial to Man City’s success and the Norwegian is considered one of the best in the world due to his exceptional goal-scoring record and impressive performances on the pitch.

He has demonstrated his ability to score goals consistently and efficiently for both club and country, and his physical attributes, technical skills, and finishing ability make him a highly sought-after player.

The Viking has already 31 goals in 29 appearances for the Sky Blues upon his arrival from Borussia Dortmund and is the top scorer in the Premier League with a staggering 25 goals already.

Man City closed the gap with Arsenal and a win could see Guardiola’s side right at the top of the table for the first time this season as the title race is becoming an exciting event this season.

The mid-week match at the Emirates already promised to be a firing contest between the top two clubs and winning the game could potentially prove pivotal if not the decider in terms of the fate of this year’s Premier League.
