Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne, Ederson – Man City injury news and return dates

Manchester City are currently enjoying the final international break of the season.

Erling Haaland of Manchester City

City went into the break on the back of a 2-0 win over Newcastle United in the FA Cup. The victory saw Pep Guardiola’s team set up a semi-final against Chelsea at Wembley Stadium next month.

However, Guardiola may have some injury concerns in the squad by the time the clash against the Gunners rolls around later this month. Here, MEN Sport takes a look at City’s current injury situation amid the March international break.

Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland has emerged as a potential injury doubt for City. The striker was spotted in training for Norway appearing to be struggling to take part in the session, leading to fears over a potential injury.

There were also fears after Haaland was substituted late on during the win over Newcastle. Norway have friendly games against Czechia and Slovakia and Haaland’s involvement will indicate the striker’s fitness.
Potential return date: Arsenal (H) – March 31

Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne missed City’s win over Newcastle with a groin injury. As a result, he was also withdrawn from the Belgium squad before the international break.

De Bruyne will be spending the next week recovering from the injury in an attempt to feature against Arsenal. Guardiola will be expected to provide an update on the midfielder when he speaks to the media again next week.

Potential return date: Late March/early April

Ederson has been sidelined with a leg injury for more than a week. The Brazilian sustained the injury in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool on March 10.

As a result, Ederson missed City’s clash against Newcastle in the FA Cup. It was initially expected that the goalkeeper would be sidelined for three to four weeks, but there is hope that he could return in time to feature against Arsenal in the first game back after the international break.

Potential return date: Arsenal (H) – March 31
