Erling Haaland wasn’t part of the team that made the trip to Luton Town, and will miss this afternoon’s Premier League clash.

Haaland will miss the game due to a foot injury.

According to reports, the Norwegian has been carrying a foot injury for a few weeks, and will now take time off to recuperate.

Haaland may miss a fortnight of football, as he may miss City’s final Champions League group stage match against Red Star on Wednesday as well as the home game against Crystal Palace next weekend.

Haaland has been in good form this season, and sits top of the Premier League’s scoring charts with 14 goals to his name.

Julian Alvare is expected to lead the line in his absence.
