City were 3-0 up at the time, although Haaland had not scored or assisted. But with the hosts comfortably ahead, Pep Guardiola seemingly decided not to take any further risk ahead of the club&aposs important Champions League tie with Young Boys on Tuesday.
A midweek win for City will see them through to the knockouts with two matchdays to spare. Haaland, who has scored 15 goals and provided 13 assists, has not missed a City game through injury since April, when he was ruled out of the 4-1 Premier League truimph over Liverpool.
He has not missed a Champions League match through a setback in more than a year, having sat out the 3-1 final group stage game win against Sevilla.
Defender Sergio Gomez arrived at the Etihad Stadium on crutches today, so he appears to be a loing-term addition to City&aposs injury list.
City have a tricky set of fixtures after the midweek clash with Young Boys.
