Erling Haaland injury update

Ahead of facing Tottenham, Manchester City have been handed a boost on the Erling Haaland front.

Erling Haaland has not featured in a game for Man City since playing against Aston Villa in the Premier League on December 6, missing the last nine matches for his club across all competitions, which include five Premier League games, due to a bone stress injury in his foot.

But on Monday, the Norwegian rejoined training in Abu Dhabi - where the club have set up their warm weather training camp - and is now eyeing a comeback.

The Norweigan shared a photo from Monday’s training session on Instagram with the caption, “Oh how I’ve missed this!”

Pep Guardiola is expected to provide a further update on Haaland in his pre-Tottenham press conference later this week.
