Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has come out to reveal that midfield playmaker Kevin De Bruyne will be set to miss out after suffering a hamstring injury.
“Kevin may be out for a while,” said Pep. “It is his hamstring. When we play 25 games in 93 days, it is hard and becomes a physical issue. He told the club website.
England international John Stones was also hooked off the game but his gaffer has hinted that it wasn’t anything serious
“We don’t give players time to recover. John’s is not a big problem – more of a precaution.
“We play a game, then after, when they are not recovered, we play another game.
“There is only a short amount of time and it is very demanding.”
