Erling Haaland hands Man City huge blow with star ruled out of Luton clash as champions look to end horror run | The Sun

ERLING HAALAND has been ruled out of Manchester City's clash with Luton.

The striker has started every Premier League for City this season but is unavailable for the trip to Kenilworth Road.

That means City are without their top scorer as the bid to end a run of four matches without a win.

Haaland has scored 14 goals in 15 Prem games but failed to find the target in City's last two matches against Tottenham and Aston Villa.

Julian Alvarez could start further forward in Haaland's absence while Rodri and Jack Grealish are set to return from suspension.

The pair sat out the 1-0 defeat to Villa on Thursday after racking up five yellow cards.

However Jeremy Doku remains a doubt after missing the trip to Villa Park through injury.

That means Bernardo Silva or Phil Foden could operate as a No10, unless Guardiola opts for Rico Lewis in the middle once again.

It is rumoured Haaland, 23, has been carrying a foot injury in recent weeks.

The stress fracture could rule Haaland out of upcoming games against Red Star Belgrade and Crystal Palace.
