Man City suffers triple injury blow after Champions League encounter with Copenhagen

Man City beat Copenhagen 3-1 in their first-leg encounter of the Champions League.

Manchester City have been dealt with a triple injury blow following their Champions League encounter against Copenhagen. The Cityzens continued their title defence in style and beat their rivals 3-1 to take advantage for the second-leg clash at Etihad.

Bernardo Silva and Phil Foden scored the goals to offer Pep Guardiola’s side a two-goal lead heading into next month’s second leg.

Silva limped off late on with a suspected ankle problem and he will now be sidelined. While talking with the media, Pep Guardiola revealed that Silva suffered a “big knock in his ankle”.

On the other hand, Jack Grealish had already been forced off in the first half. Man City boss said, “I did not speak with the doctor but it looks muscular. It’s a pity, in the last days his attitude in training was much much better. He helps us find the right tempo.”

Josko Gvardiol will also spend a short time out after missing tonight’s encounter, stating: “Josko will be out two-three weeks, he has an ankle ligament injury.”
