Erling Haaland was taken off at half-time during Manchester City’s win over Aston Villa with a suspected injury.
The Norwegian striker has been sensational since joining Borussia Dortmund in the summer and is on track to break about every possible goalscoring record.
He was in great form for Man City on Sunday as they breezed past Aston Villa but had to be subbed off after 45 minutes with what looked like a hamstring injury.

Pep Guardiola’s side has a huge clash with league leaders Arsenal on Wednesday and might have to do without their elite number nine.
They have closed the gap on the Gunners and a win against them on Wednesday will heap a huge amount of pressure onto Mikel Arteta’s shoulders.
Haaland has a long history of suffering from injuries, he missed a huge chunk of Dortmund’s season before completing the move to England in the summer and his loss now could be devastating.
