Guardiola pumped up after 'incredible professional' show by Haaland in Champions League

Manchester City faces a major setback ahead of their eagerly awaited encounter with Liverpool on November 25th, as they may be missing three key players. Ederson, Brazil’s first-choice goalkeeper, continues to battle a foot injury and has officially withdrawn from the squad. In his absence, City may be prone in the goalkeeping department.

To make matters worse, important midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is still out with a hamstring injury, denying Pep Guardiola of the Belgian playmaker’s imaginative abilities. The absence of De Bruyne could affect City’s midfield movement and limit their offensive options.

John Stones, City’s defender-turned-midfielder, is also questionable for the Liverpool game due to a muscle injury sustained in the club’s recent Champions League win over Young Boys. While Guardiola has dispelled fears of a lengthy absence, Stones’ readiness for the upcoming match remains in doubt.

In addition, defender Sergio Gomez is expected to miss the game due to injury, putting City’s defensive depth to the test. As Guardiola navigates these probable absences, the match against Liverpool becomes even more important, with both teams battling for first place in the Premier League table.

The manager must rearrange his lineup and devise a strategy to compensate for the absence of these crucial players in what promises to be an exciting match at the Etihad.
