Pep Guardiola has issued an injury update on Manchester City stars Kevin De Bruyne and Aymeric Laporte. De Bruyne has been missing from City’s last two games, while Laporte has just made one appearance during this season.
Guardiola’s side yesterday celebrated a 3-1 win over Potro in the Champions League and are preparing to face West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday, October 24.
Speaking after the win, Guardiola provided an update on De Bruyne and Laporte, as well as Fernandinho, who suffered an injury against Porto.
“I think Kevin and Laporte start training tomorrow [Thursday] but I don’t know how they will be tomorrow and the next days so we will see,” said Guardiola.
“Unfortunately people came back and now we have lost another but it is really important to come back.
“In three days we go to London and after we travel to France to play against Marseille and then Sheffield three days after. The schedules are so demanding and we need all the players.
“It’s bad news [on Fernandinho]. It’s in his leg I think he will be out for four to six weeks. it is a big blow for us because we need people there.”
