Unexpectedly, Haaland was unable to go to Luton Town on Sunday, as Guardiola said prior to kickoff that the prolific scorer had sustained a foot injury.

In his absence, City had a difficult time winning games; at Kenilworth Road, they overcame the Hatters 2-1 to snap their four-game losing streak and move up to fourth place in the standings, four points behind leaders Liverpool.

Guardiola responded to a question on his Norwegian superstar’s fitness from MOTD right after the game by saying, “We don’t know.” Let’s see if it’s his foot. Day by day, week by week. Hopefully we can recover him for the [Club] World Cup.’

In their final Premier League game before heading to the Club World Cup, City play struggling Crystal Palace on Saturday after traveling to Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday evening in a meaningless Champions League match.

The competition, which is being hosted in Saudi Arabia, sees the Citizens advance to the semi-finals. On December 19, they will face off, and on December 22, either the final or the third-place playoff will take place.

Erik ten Hag is anxious to prevent Jadon Sancho from making a “empty gesture,” therefore Manchester United is apparently willing to accept a “significant loss” on him.

Sancho has a disruptive impact on the rest of United’s team, according to manager Ten Hag, who is determined to get rid of the winger.

This season, Sancho and Ten Hag had a nasty falling out, with the Dutchman publicly criticizing his player in the media for his lack of effort in practice. After spending £73 million on him in 2021, United is now willing to suffer a “significant loss” on the player in the January transfer window.
