Erling Haaland continued his remarkable start to life at Manchester City on Wednesday by netting the winner against former club Borussia Dortmund. 

The Norwegian has scored 13 times in eight games across the Premier League and Champions League, and is well on course to break a number of records by the end of the season.

Next up for The Citizens is a trip to Wolves in their final league match before the international break the following week, and Haaland will be hoping to add to his tally against a side that currently sit 14th in the table.

Wolves have been buoyed this week by the arrival of Diego Costa, though, and the Spanish forward could make his debut against City on Saturday, according to reports.

As per The Mail, the ex-Chelsea star has taken part in a full training session with his new team, and could therefore be in line for a debut on Saturday.

Costa, 33, joined Wolves on a free transfer on Tuesday having spent the last six months without a club following his departure from Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro in January.

Costa won two Premier League titles during his time with Chelsea

Wolves moved for the striker following injuries to both Raul Jimenez and new signing Sasa Kalajdzic, with Costa penning a short-term deal until the end of the season.

The Spaniard boasts a fearsome reputation in England, though, courtesy of his four-year stint in London between 2014 and 2018.

During that period, Costa scored 59 goals and registered 23 assists in 120 matches for The Blues, including 52 goals in the Premier League.

He lifted two Premier League titles during his first spell in England, as well as winning the League Cup.

Costa also boasted an impressive record for Atletico Madrid – who he played for both before and after his time at Chelsea – scoring 83 goals in 216 games for the Spanish club.

City have kept just one clean sheet away from home in the Premier League this season, and Costa will fancy his chances of causing Pep Guardiola’s side problems if he is passed fit enough to feature in the match.
