Key storylines + in-form players to keep an eye on

This time, we can combine the "key storylines" and "in-form players" sections: It's Phil Foden and Erling Haaland.

Let's focus on the latter.

Erling Haaland is threatening to put up season numbers that would seem impossible were we not to have experience Lionel Messi's 2011-12 season at Barcelona. That season saw Messi score 50 goals and 19 assists in La Liga while adding 20 more goals and nine assists in other competitions.

The match total? 53.

That works out to 1.4 goals and 0.4 assists per game.

Haaland? So far he has 17 goals and three assists in 11 matches, good for… 1.54 goals and 0.27 assists per game.

So, yes, Haaland is currently on his "Messi prime" grind.

The lowdown on Copenhagen

Copenhagen enters this match hoping that star goalkeeper - ex-Brighton starter - Mathew Ryan can help shut down an incredible City attack.
