Speaking on his case in pre-match press conference, Pep Guardiola said his injury will be assessed after Monday’s final training session before a decision.

“I can’t [give an update],” Guardiola told the media.

“We train this afternoon, so I don’t know.

“I speak with the doctor and him. He told me he felt better, but I don’t know.

“Tomorrow I will listen to doctor. If he says he doesn’t have pain, I will consider letting him play.

“There are lots of days to recover.

“Right now, if Erling doesn’t play, Julian is going to play there.”
