Injuries are relatively few and far between at Manchester City as things stand’s but it’s the quality and prominence of said absentees that look to be affecting the side worst of all.
Summer singing llkay Gundogan still looks set to miss the rest of the season with a knee cruciate injury, per the Guardian’s Jamie Jackson, but the German gave his followers an update on his post-surgery progress after Christmas.
The other big miss for the Citizens is centre-back Vincent Kompany, who remains sidelined with a knee injury and is still facing a wait before he can make his way back into Guardiola’s selections plans.
Liverpool writer Dave O’Connell confirmed prior to Saturday’s meeting at Anfield that Kompany would miss the tie, while winger Leroy was also kept on the sidelines.
It seems unlikely Guardiola will rush Kompany back into his plans least he risk another setback, meeting John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi are almost certain to keep their place in central defence.
Burnley are fortunate to be without any major injury concerns after Dean Marney made his return to the starting XI in Saturday’s clash against Sunderland, leaving Dyche with a full selection coming to the Etihad.
