Manchester City striker Erling Haaland will need to pass a late fitness test if he is to face Premier League leaders Arsenal in Wednesday’s top-of-the-table clash at the Emirates.
Haaland has scored 25 Premier League goals in his first season but is doubtful to face Arsenal in the first leg of the potential Premier League title decider after he struck in the win over Aston Villa.
Arsenal have a three-point lead over Pep Guardiola’s side ahead of their first league meeting of the season, but City can leapfrog the Gunners with an away win.
City knocked Mikel Arteta’s side out of the FA Cup with a 1-0 win at the Etihad last month, but this long-awaited Premier League clash could help decide the fate of the title.
Leandro Trossard could start for Arsenal after scoring from the bench against Brentford on Saturday. Gabriel Martinelli could drop out, while Gabriel Jesus remains unavailable due to injury and will not be fit to face his former club.
Erling Haaland will undergo a fitness test to determine if he can face Arsenal, after the striker picked up a knock in the win against Aston Villa. Phil Foden returned from the bench on Sunday and is fit again, but John Stones remains out.
