Manchester City have been handed a double injury blow ahead of the remaining Premier League games which will decide who gets to lift title at the end of the season with Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho on the sidelines.
Direct rivals Liverpool are depending on the City team drop points in the last three games and just have been given a boost as the end of 2018/19 campaign draws nearer.
Liverpool have returned to the top of the table after smashing five goals past Huddersfield Town last night, but a win in all three remaning matches for City will hand them the Premier League title once again.
The defending champions has suffered a huge blow which could possibly hinder a win in all three matches.
The Pep Guardiola’s team will be playing without their Belgian attacker Kevin De Bruyne as they will be taking on Burnley, who denied Chelsea all three points in a 2-2 draw in their last match, on Saturday afternoon.
Guardiola took to the media to give an update on De Bruyne injury and also make comments on Fernandinho, who was subbed off in the Cityzens 2-0 win against Manchester United at the Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
Speaking on De Bruyne, Guardiola said: “He’s still not fit, but he’s getting better.”
While on Fernandinho, he said: “We’ll see tomorrow, he has a problem with the knee.”
