The manager of the Cityzens, Pep Guardiola confirmed that the Norwegian might be available for this weekend's game against the foxes. According to him, Haaland is already feeling better but he will be accessed during the club's next training session.
He feels better, we have training this afternoon and assess. If [Erling] Haaland doesn’t play, then [Julian] Alvarez is the natural first option to replace him. I don’t judge Julian on how many goals he has scored.
Guardiola also spoke about the goal-scoring ratio of Alvarez compared to Haaland since the start of the season.
Play 90 minutes every game and he [Julian Alvarez] will score goals, maybe not like Erling [Haaland], but he will score goals.
Manchester City could go top of the Premier League table if they get to beat Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium before Arsenal play host to Nottingham Forest.
