Erling Haaland injured and withdrawn at half-time of Manchester City against Bournemouth



| Last Updated:


Manchester City have been left sweating on the fitness of Erling Haaland after the Norwegian was withdrawn at half-time against Bournemouth due to injury.

The City number nine was largely quiet during a first-half of action that saw the Premier League champions dominate from the first whistle, scoring three goals and all thanks to involvement from Jeremy Doku.

The Belgian has given Manchester City supporters plenty to be excited about for both the immediate matches and the long-term future, strengthening his game with every passing week and offering a very different dimension in attack.

However, despite the brilliance being showcased by the summer signing, most of the conversation from supporters across social media following the half-time interval concerned Erling Haaland – who was replaced at half-time.

As per the information of Jack Gaughan of MailSport, Erling Haaland was replaced by Pep Guardiola due to injury, with some at the stadium spotting the Manchester City striker hobbling off the Etihad surface for the half-time break.

The nature of the problem remains unknown at present, with the severity of the issue also expected to be assessed in the aftermath of the Premier League contest at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is expected to provide a more detailed update on the fitness of his star striker during his post-match media duties, whilst also offering further insight on Sergio Gomez.

The Spanish full-back was spotted arriving at the Etihad Stadium with the rest of the squad for the meeting with Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon, but only with the aid of crutches in what some believe could be an issue sustained on the training ground.

This is a developing story. More to follow.
