The Norway international, who has scored 42 goals in all competitions this season, had to withdraw from his country's European Championship qualifiers against Spain and Georgia last week because of the problem.

Haaland leads the Premier League with 28 goals and has scored nine in his last three games in all competitions.

The game was important for both teams, with City eight points behind first-place Arsenal with a game in hand, and Liverpool fighting to secure a top-four spot for Champions League qualification.

City manager Pep Guardiola had said Haaland would be given the chance to prove his fitness during the team’s training session on Friday.
