Erling Haaland absent from Manchester City travelling squad against Luton Town.



Erling Haaland is not in the traveling squad for Manchester City’s match against Luton Town.Reports indicate that Erling Haaland will miss Sunday’s Premier League match between Manchester City and Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.

The Norway international forward has continued his Treble-winning success of the 2022/23 season and the benchmarks he set throughout the season with a string of impressive goals in the early weeks of the current campaign.


Throughout his 22 appearances for Manchester City thus far this season, Erling Haaland has amassed a remarkable 19 goals and five assists in competitions including the FA Community Shield, UEFA Champions League, and UEFA Super Cup.Nevertheless, his goal contribution tally will not be extended for Manchester City’s upcoming Premier League match this weekend, as his absence from Pep Guardiola’s travelling squad was confirmed by reports on Saturday evening.


Erling Haaland, as reported by Jake Gorfin, did not accompany the remainder of the Manchester City squad on their Saturday evening journey prior to their Sunday afternoon match against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.Currently, the rationale behind Haaland’s omission and the nature of the issue confronting the Norwegian, who started the entire 90 minutes against Aston Villa in the previous week, are both unknown.


After this weekend’s match against the newly-promoted side led by Rob Edwards, Manchester City will travel to Serbia to face Crvena zvezda away from home to conclude their UEFA Champions League group stage campaign.This matchup will present Pep Guardiola with an ideal circumstance to rest and rotate his squad, following the reigning Champions of Europe’s victory over RB Leipzig in their previous matchup in the competition, which secured top spot in the group.
