Manchester City pick up two fresh injury concerns after last night’s win over Tottenham

While Manchester City picked up a precious victory over Tottenham at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last night, they also picked up two fresh injury concerns out of the match. Kevin’s De Bruyne and Ederson had to be substituted midway through the second half. With West Ham up next on Sunday, the pair may face a battle to be fit for City’s season defining match at the Etihad.

Kevin De Bruyne had to be substituted after being on the receiving end of a nasty looking challenge from Pape Matar Sarr. The Manchester City playmaker spent a considerable time receiving treatment after the challenge. He was replaced in the 69th minute by Jeremy Doku as it became apparent that he couldn’t continue.

Ederson also suffered a similar fate to Kevin De Bruyne. City’s number one keeper was clattered into by Cristian Romero after making a smart save. He attempted to continue but was replaced by Stefan Ortega. Ortega’s introduction paved the way for his heroics later in the game.

Speaking following his team’s crucial win, Pep Guardiola provided an update on the injury status of De Bruyne and Ederson. He told the media: “Kevin (De Bruyne) had a kick to the ankle and couldn’t run properly. Ederson did not have concussion. He had a problem with his eye. He could not see properly, so the doctor said I should change.

Attention will now shift to Manchester City training for any updates on the status of De Bruyne and Ederson. A further update is expected when Pep Guardiola faces the media on Friday for his pre-game press conference before his team takes on West Ham at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
