Manchester City injury latest
Here is all the latest Manchester City team news before their next clash.
Ahead of the Newcastle trip, Pep Guardiola ruled Erling Haaland out until the end of the month:
“The doctors decided to stop him for one week and maybe restart in Abu Dhabi,” the City boss explained.
“Hopefully at the end of this month he’ll be ready. It was a little bit more than we expected in the beginning. It’s a bone, it needs time. Every injury you can do whatever you want but it’s a question of time. Now we have two games but when you are injured at end of November, you miss a lot of games. And we missed him. We need him. Hopefully he can come back and play the last four or five months without a problem.”
Ederson was forced off in the aforementioned win over Newcastle but City are optimistic that the goalkeeper will be ready to feature after the break:
“He didn’t walk well as he left the pitch,” admitted Guardiola post-match. But if it is just a knock he will be fine because we have a break for 10 days. If there is some damage, the doctors will tell me.”
Finally, Manuel Akanji is racing to be fit for City’s next game. It has been confirmed that the stopper is looking at either the Tottenham or Burnley games for his return after picking up a knock vs Huddersfield Town.
