The Norwegian striker moved to the Etihad Stadium over the summer and has wasted no time in establishing himself as the Premier League's most prolific striker, scoring 22 goals in just 16 matches across all competitions.

Despite a strong start, the 22-year-fitness old's has suffered this week after he was limited to 45 minutes against former club Borussia Dortmund due to a foot injury and illness.

With Leicester City up next for Pep Guardiola's side, the Spanish head coach has stated that a late decision on Haaland's participation against the Foxes, which will be exclusively live on talkSPORT, will be made.

"He feels better," Guardiola said, "but we'll train this afternoon and assess in a few hours."

"We'll see how he feels in his foot and then make a decision." I'll know in two hours whether he'll be able to play or not."

Haaland is not a player who is plagued by injuries, but he has had his fair share of niggles in recent seasons.

Last season, the striker was sidelined seven times, but most of those times he only missed one or two games due to minor injuries.
