Erling Haaland (Manchester City):
One of the most devastating strikers in world football, Erling Haaland, suffered an injury blow while on international duty with Norway. The Manchester City forward reportedly picked up a knock that has raised concerns among the Cityzens’ faithful. The extent of the injury is yet to be fully disclosed, but any prolonged absence from Haaland could pose a significant challenge for Pep Guardiola’s side.
Son Heung-Min (Tottenham Hotspur):
Tottenham Hotspur’s talismanic forward, Son Heung-Min, limped off the pitch during South Korea’s international fixture, leaving Spurs fans anxious about his availability for upcoming Premier League clashes.

Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton & Hove Albion):
Brighton & Hove Albion’s Japanese sensation, Kaoru Mitoma, sustained an injury during the international break, adding to the Seagulls’ injury concerns. The dynamic winger had been making a positive impact for Graham Potter’s side, and his absence will be felt as Brighton looks to maintain their impressive start to the season.
