EPL: Man City Suffer Defensive Crisis Ahead Of Wolves Clash

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, is facing a defensive injury ahead of their Premier League clash at Wolves on Wednesday.

Kyle Walker and John Stones were unavailable for the 5-0 win over Newcastle on Sunday.

Both defenders are not expected to play again this season.

Ruben Dias, meanwhile, was taken off at half-time with a muscle problem and is also set to miss the remaining three games.

It leaves Guardiola with just Aymeric Laporte, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Joao Cancelo and Nathan Ake, who is carrying an ankle problem, for the final three games against Wolves, West Ham United and Aston Villa.


“We have 13.5 players because Nathan is not in perfect condition,” Guardiola said.

“Ruben, Kyle and John are out for the season. In this situation it’s not a problem. Rodri can play there, Fernandinho can play there and we have the academy. Everyone has to do extra.

“We have 13.5 players for these games and everyone has to do more and more to help our absences. We arrive with problems and that’s all.”
