Pep Guardiola says Erling Haaland is not fit to face Sevilla on Wednesday but could return for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Fulham.
Haaland missed last weekend’s 1-0 victory over Leicester City after being substituted at half-time in the midweek goalless draw with Borussia Dortmund.
The Blues have already guaranteed top spot in Group G of this year’s UEFA Champions League with three victories and two draws from their five matches so far.
Speaking to the media in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, Guardiola said he is optimistic for a quick return for the Norwegian striker.
“Tomorrow he is not available,” he said.
“He feels better compared to Saturday and Sunday but he is not 100% and we don’t want to take a risk, it makes no sense.
“Hopefully he will be back for Fulham. Every day he is feeling better.”
