On the time Metropolis boss Pep Guardiola performed down the choice, saying Haaland had been unwell earlier than the match and was combating a foot damage.
On Friday, at his prematch information convention, Guardiola talked up Haaland’s situation.
“He feels higher,” Guardiola stated. “We’re coaching this afternoon so we’ll assess. We’ll see how he feels in his foot and after we are going to resolve.”
Guardiola added he has a ready-made alternative in 22-year-old Argentinian Julian Alvarez.
“If Haaland would not play, then Alvarez is the pure first choice to switch him,” Guardiola added.
In complete Guardiola makes seven modifications for the journey to Leicester with Kevin de Bruyne, Ederson and Jack Grealish returning. Phil Foden is on the bench.
Manchester Metropolis XI: Ederson, Stones, Cancelo, Gundogan, Grealish, Laporte, Rodri, De Bruyne, Alvarez, Silva, Akanji.
