anchester City have Erling Haaland back for today’s massive Premier League meeting with Liverpool at Anfield.
The Norwegian star was rested for Tuesday’s Champions League trip to Copenhagen after manager Pep Guardiola admitted he did not recover well following last weekend’s win over Southampton.
Haaland, however, is available now and will start on Merseyside alongside Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva, who are also fit after recent fatigue concerns.

Kyle Walker, Kalvin Phillips and John Stones remain injury concerns for England ahead of the World Cup, but City look strong in pretty much every other area.
Ruben Dias remained on the bench on Wednesday and Nathan Ake appeared for only two minutes. They both start.
Speaking of his injured England trio, Guardiola said on Friday: “John I think will be back I don’t know when but maybe one week, ten days. Kalvin is getting better and is improving a lot. Kyle is still out.”
Starting Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Akanji, Dias, Ake, Cancelo; Rodri, De Bruyne, Gundogan; Silva, Haaland, Foden.
Time and date: 4:30pm BST, Sunday October 16, 2022
Referee: Anthony Taylor, Andy Madley (VAR)
