FA CUP SEMI FINAL: Man City Key Player Doubtful For FA Cup Clash Vs Chelsea

2 minutes read

Manchester City faces uncertainty as star striker Erling Haaland may miss Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final encounter with Chelsea due to a muscle injury.

Haaland asked to be taken off at the end of 90 minutes during Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final tie against Real Madrid.

Despite City’s eventual defeat in penalties, concerns over Haaland’s fitness persist, casting doubt on his availability not only for the FA Cup fixture but also for the upcoming league match against Brighton.

Speaking in his presser on Friday, Guardiola confirmed Haaland “felt something” during the game against Madrid.

The Spanish coach also gave update on Kevin De Bruyne who was also taken off against Madrid.

“Kevin [De Bruyne] seems well,” Guardiola said. “Erling [Haaland] felt something, a muscular issue. Kevin felt exhausted, so tired, after five months out injured, so that’s normal.

“We’ll see more tomorrow. [Haaland] A little bit niggles, a little bit problems, we will see his evolution in the next hours.

“It’s normal [to be tired] with the amount of games we’ve played this season and in the previous seasons.

“There’s not much time for recovery, we played extra-time and the intensity we play. We are not machines, the fatigue is there.”
