Manchester City could have three injuries in a week, including John Stones, who will miss the Sevilla match.
Stones and Ruben Dias missed the Burnley match due to concussions. In their absence, Nathan Ake and Manu Akanji started the 3-0 triumph, while Aymeric Laporte and new signing Josko Gvardiol came off the bench in the second half.
After repeating his Champions League final hamstring injury in the first half against Burnley, Pep Guardiola expects Kevin De Bruyne to miss a long time. Stones’ injury appears to be serious enough to keep him out of the Super Cup versus Sevilla in Athens.
Guardiola revealed Stones’ hip injury after the encounter at Turf Moor. “Ruben had a head concussion,” the manager claimed. The protocol is seven days off since we were terrified.
John felt the abductor with one pass. Today, the doctor told me he felt great. He may be ready for Newcastle but not Sevilla.”
After De Bruyne left, Kyle Walker commanded City to stave off Bayern Munich’s interest. However, fellow full-back Joao Cancelo was absent again due to his unclear future at the club.
