Pep Guardiola confirmed on Saturday afternoon, after his sides dramatic 2-1 victory over Southampton, that David Silva suffered a muscular problem towards the end of the first-half that would leave him out for a minimum of 10-12 days.
Manchester City have been hampered by injury this season, and the situation has not got any better for Pep Guardiola’s squad, going into two of the biggest games of the season so far.
City were certain to be without four crucial players going into the trips to Atalanta and Liverpool this week, however a muscular problem suffered by David Silva means he will join Aymeric Laporte, Leroy Sane, Rodri, and Oleksandr Zinchenko on the sideline for a period of time.
A victory on Wednesday night in Milan will secure qualification to the knock-out phases of the Champions League, while the trip to Anfield on Sunday afternoon is a game the blues cannot afford to lose – with the gap still standing at six points between first and second after the weekend’s action.
