Manchester City will have to tackle Luton Town without the services of Erling Haaland. The news will come as a huge blow to Pep Guardiola’s side. They will now look to return to form without the services of their top scorer.

David Ornstein of the Athletic has reported that Haaland is out of today’s clash. He adds that it is a blow for the treble winners as they look to arrest their recent slide and keep pace with the top three sides in the Premier League table.

Erling Haaland is Manchester City’s top scorer this season with 19 goals in all competitions. He is also the top scorer in the Premier League with 14 goals to lead the Premier League Golden Boot race.
