Is Erling Haaland injured?

According to Sportbible, the Norwegian hotshot was not pictured at Man City's training base on Thursday, March 30, as Pep Guardiola's charges resumed training.

While no update has been delivered regarding Haaland's fitness, the publication claims he remains a major doubt for the Liverpool clash.

The star forward was originally a doubt for the cracker after he suffered a groin injury during Man City's 6-0 win over Burnley in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, his father had previously spoken about the ex-Dortmund star's fitness, revealing the 22-year-old has visited Barcelona for check-ups in recent days.

"Manchester City has a partnership with a hospital in Barcelona so he has been there for further checks and treatment," Haaland's dad told Norwegian news outlet TV2 via Liverpool Echo last week.

Sleep is Haaland's top secret

Sports Brief earlier reported that Haaland rates his sleep highly and does not joke with it and claimed in an interview it is the most important thing in his life.

He has a strict sleep schedule, goes to bed between 10 pm and 10:30 pm and makes use of technological equipment to make him sleep well and minor data of his sleep cycles.
