Erling Haaland injury update by Pep Guardiola after missing Chelsea FA Cup semi-final.

Erling Haaland missed Manchester City’s FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea, prompting Pep Guardiola to issue an injury update. Haaland had been subbed off during City’s previous match against Real Madrid and was uncertain to feature in the FA Cup game.

Ultimately, he did not travel with the squad, with Julian Alvarez taking his place in the starting lineup. Guardiola confirmed that Haaland was not fit enough to participate and expressed concern by stating that he was unable to provide a specific timeframe for the striker’s return.

In contrast, Guardiola fielded a strong side for the Chelsea game, with several key players such as Rodri, Bernardo Silva, Kyle Walker, and Kevin De Bruyne making the starting XI. De Bruyne, who had also been substituted early in the Real Madrid match, was deemed fit for the game against Chelsea according to Guardiola.

Guardiola’s exact quote on De Bruyne’s condition was: “He feels good.”
