Erling Haaland’s injury update provided by Pep Guardiola after absence in Chelsea FA Cup semi.

Erling Haaland missed Manchester City’s FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea, prompting Pep Guardiola to issue an injury update. Haaland, who was subbed off during City’s midweek clash against Real Madrid, was uncertain for the match due to his injury. He ultimately did not travel with the squad, and Julian Alvarez took his place in the starting XI. Guardiola confirmed that Haaland was unfit for the match and expressed concern about his return timeline, stating, “He’s injured.

I don’t think it’s much, but he’s not able for today. I don’t know [if he will be back for the next game].” Despite Haaland’s absence, Guardiola named a near-to-full-strength team for the Chelsea game, including players like Rodri, Bernardo Silva, and Kevin De Bruyne. Guardiola mentioned that De Bruyne felt good and would start the game, but the team’s performance was still uncertain.
