Erling Haaland could play in Manchester City’s Premier League match against Liverpool on Saturday despite an injury scare while on international duty with Norway.
Haaland suffered a knock against the Faroe Islands last week and did not feature for his country against Scotland on Sunday.
The injury had initially been described as a possible recurrence of an earlier ankle injury.
Haaland came off with an ankle injury in the 6-1 win over Bournemouth in the Premier League but City manager Pep Guardiola said Friday the striker was in contention for the top-of-the-table clash with Liverpool.
“He trained yesterday with some niggles,” Guardiola said. “Today we are in the last training, hopefully he can play a part.”
