Haaland injury absence length unknown - Guardiola

 

Pep Guardiola, Manager of Manchester City, speaks with Julian Alvarez of Manchester City during the Premier League match between Aston Villa and Manchester City at Villa Park on December 06, 2023 in Birmingham, England.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he does not know long Erling Haaland will be out for with a foot injury.

The Norway striker had started all of City's league matches this season but was left out of their squad for the Premier League game at Luton Town on Sunday (14:00 GMT).

"A bone stress reaction in his foot," said Guardiola when asked about Haaland's issue.

"After the last game against Aston Villa, he felt it and he cannot play."

Haaland leads this season's top-flight scoring chart with 14 goals, and has 19 in all competitions for City.

"I don't know (the length of the injury). Week by week, day by day, we will see what happens," added Guardiola.

"Erling has been so important since he's arrived, that's for sure. But during the season we see this sort of thing. Injuries, suspensions, problems, we have to adapt."

City travel to Luton after three draws and a defeat in their past four Premier League matches.
