Haaland's Road to Recovery
Injury Concerns and Rain-Soaked Training Sessions - Can Haaland Lead City to Victory Against Liverpool?
The prolific Norwegian striker faced yet another "agonizing" ankle injury while representing his nation in Euro 2024 qualification during the international break. Consequently, he was absent from the clash against Scotland, raising concerns about his participation at the Etihad Stadium upon his return. Despite this setback, the 23-year-old Haaland has actively participated in training alongside Pep Guardiola's squad, gearing up for a crucial Premier League encounter against Liverpool. Notably, Haaland, who scored 52 goals in City's Treble-winning campaign last season, seems to be in optimal condition.
Despite challenging weather conditions during Thursday's training session, with Manchester rain pouring down, Guardiola monitored the fitness of Rodri, Ederson, and Nathan Ake, all of whom have been nursing recent injuries. As reigning champions,City
currently lead the Premier League table, holding a narrow one-point advantage over Liverpool. The forthcoming showdown against Liverpool underscores the significance of players like Haaland performing at their peak to secure City's continued dominance at the summit of the league.
