Man City receives two injury boosts ahead of their matchup with Liverpool FC.

In terms of injuries, Manchester City had a difficult international break, but Pep Guardiola welcomed two doubts back into training before their Premier League comeback.

Erling Haaland and Nathan Ake of Manchester City practiced with the team in advance of their Premier League matchup against Liverpool at home on Saturday.

Both Blues players are questionable for the midday kickoff after being declared ineligible for their respective countries’ international duties.

Ake was sidelined with an undisclosed injury during the 4–4 draw against Chelsea prior to halftime.

Haaland was playing for Norway when his ankle problem, which had forced him off against Bournemouth earlier in the month, returned.

He did not play against Scotland on Sunday, but he did win the match 2-0 against the Faroe Islands.

Prior to their travel to Hampden Park, Norway’s manager Stale Solbakken did propose that, had the match been a final, the striker might have been allowed to participate.

However, his absence worried City, who play their opening game of the weekend against Liverpool.

On Thursday night, City’s official website included a collection of training photos, and among them were shots of both Ake and Haaland.

The two appear to be completely engaged in the activity, which is fantastic for the weekend.

Another player seen in the session was Rodri, who withdrew from Spain’s opening match against Cyprus citing “discomfort,” according to sources. On Sunday, however, the midfield player did play 86 minutes against Georgia.

The images of Mateo Kovacic, Matheus Nunes, John Stones, Ederson, and several other City players who are questionable about fitness are missing.

At his pre-game press conference on Friday, Pep Guardiola is expected to give an update on every player who has returned from international service.
