The prolific Norwegian striker has not played since the defeat away at Aston Villa back in early December after suffering a setback in his recovery from a lingering foot injury.
While Haaland missed the win over Tottenham in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday night, Pep Guardiola confirmed he would featured when former City captain Vincent Kompany brings his Burnley side to the Etihad Stadium this evening.
Haaland does not start, after so long out, but his return to the squad is a major boost for City.
"Apparently he will be selected," Guardiola told reporters at his pre-match press conference. "It is the first time he is back."
City have also recently welcomed back skipper Kevin De Bruyne, and he makes his first start since returning to fitness, while Ederson and John Stones are also in the starting lineup.
Julian Alvarez continues to lead the line, while Jeremy Doku gets the nod over Jack Grealish and Kyle Walker has to settle for a place on the bench, as Rico Lewis starts.
