boss says is feeling ‘much better’ ahead of the side’s clash against Young Boys.

Haaland came off at half-time in City’s 6-1 win against Bournemouth on the weekend.

The Norwegian was struggling with an ankle issue, and Guardiola didn’t want to take any further risks over the striker.

City need a win against Young Boys to guarantee qualification for the knockout stages.

And, though Guardiola says he can’t guarantee Haaland will play before a training session this afternoon, he says he’s feeling much better.

‘I can’t [give an update],’ said .

‘We train this afternoon, so I don’t know.

‘I speak with the doctor and him. He told me he felt better, but I don’t know.

‘Tomorrow I will listen to doctor. If he says he doesn’t have pain, I will consider letting him play.

‘There are lots of days to recover.

‘Right now, if Erling doesn’t play, Julian is going to play there.’
