Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker came off injured against Atlético Madrid, while Phil Foden left the pitch heavily bandaged.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola admitted his team was in “big trouble” after injuries hit his players during their Champions League triumph over Atlético Madrid. A 0-0 second-leg draw in a fiery crash in the Atlético secured a 1-0 aggregate win and sent the Premier League champions into the last four.
But, just days before their FA Cup match with league rivals Liverpool, Manchester City saw Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker were struck with injuries, while Phil Foden left the pitch with his head bandaged.
“We are in big trouble,” Guardiola told BT Sport.
“We cannot forget we played a challenging game against Liverpool three days ago. We came here; we had a lot of injuries. I don’t know what will happen in the following weeks, but today we will celebrate.
Guardiola did not say how intensive the injuries were, while he also said he had “nothing to say” on the embarrassing scenes which marred his side’s progression on Wednesday night.
