Erling Haaland is finally set to make his return for Manchester City as they prepare to host struggling Burnley in the Premier League on Wednesday night. The prolific Norway international has been sidelined for nearly two months due to a foot injury.

City manager, Pep Guardiola, confirmed to reporters that Haaland will be available for selection. This will be the first time he has been back in action since his injury, which has been his first significant layoff since joining City.

Haaland had an impressive first season with the club, scoring 52 goals, and had already netted 19 this season before his injury. Guardiola emphasized the significance of Haaland’s return, stating that having the entire squad available makes the team stronger and that Haaland is an important player for them.

Despite revelations about Kyle Walker’s private life, Guardiola made it clear that he would not be removing Walker from his position as captain. He stated that this decision was for the team to make, not his.

Guardiola also refused to comment on any matters regarding Walker’s personal issues, expressing support for him and his family. Meanwhile, the recent announcement of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp stepping down at the end of the season has brought attention to Guardiola’s own position. However, Guardiola stated that he has no thoughts of taking a break and feels fully supported by the club.

In the upcoming match against Burnley, Guardiola will face one of his former players, Vincent Kompany, who is now the manager of Burnley. Despite Burnley’s struggles in the top flight, Guardiola expects a tough contest, showing respect for Kompany and acknowledging that his team will need to prepare as well as possible.
