Pep Guardiola has refused to rule Erling Haaland out of Saturday’s Premier League game against Liverpool, saying the striker will be assessed after a final training session on Friday afternoon.

Haaland, who is the division’s top scorer with 28 goals in 26 games, was ruled out of Norway’s international fixtures over the past two weeks with a groin injury and missed training on Thursday.

However, Guardiola is still giving his star forward the chance to feature at the Etihad Stadium, but does not believe his side will struggle to score if Haaland should miss out.

“We’ll see this [Friday] afternoon, the last training is at 4pm,” Guardiola said.
“We’ll see today and at the end, the doctors and especially the players will decide how does he feel. I spoke with him and he feels good. We will see what happens.

“Life is risky in these stages. You have to take it and we scored a lot of goals this season, he’s scored an incredible amount of goals.
