Guardiola reveals Haaland might miss the Chelsea game due to an injury

Despite featuring in Man City's 2-1 victory against Fulham and scoring a late penalty, Guardiola admits the Norwegian striker has not fully recovered from the foot injury he had as he might miss City’s EFL clash with Chelsea.

After missing games against Leicester City and Sevilla due to a bruised foot,

Scoring 23 goals in a total of 17 appearances in his debut season with City,

Pep Guardiola

revealed the Norwegian has not fully recovered from his foot injury as he might miss the EFL tie with


on Wednesday. Guardiola told his Tuesday press conference:

"He is still not perfect.

"We'll see tomorrow [Wednesday] and on Saturday [against Brentford]. He is getting better.

"What's important is the bone isn't broken so there's no damage, just the ligament is damaged a bit. It's not perfect right now, but in one week or 10 days anything can happen."

Asked whether he'll allow Haaland to represent


this World Cup, the Spanish coach said:

"If he feels good, to play for the national team is important for the players. I have no problem for players when they are fit to play for the national team."


Kyle Walker

out of the upcoming EFL tie, the Spaniard was asked whether he believes

Kalvin Phillips

will be fit to play for England in Qatar. He said: "

That is up to Gareth Southgate. I cannot answer, I don't know what the plan is.

"I think they are communicating with the physios and doctors – the club and the English national team. Apart from that I cannot answer you, I don't know."

Ruling January transfers out, Guardiola added:

"We are not going to do that. We have the squad we have, we are pleased and that's all
