Nicolas Otamendi is the latest player to be sidelined through injury for Manchester City, after being hit by a ‘muscle problem‘ that left him out of the Sheffield United clash and the New Years day game against Everton.
Pep Guardiola’s side have struggled with injury all season, and despite some people anticipating that the Blues had come out of the hectic festive period unscathed, it now appears as though that is not the case, with another central defender ruled out.
Nicolas Otamendi, who has struggled with form at times this season, has been ruled out of the Manchester City squad through a muscle injury, according to the Manchester Evening News.
The defender will join Aymeric Laporte, Leroy Sane and Ederson (ill) on the sidelines for the near future at the very minimum.
