(Xports News Intern Reporter Hwi-Jun Han) Manchester City’s injured players are expected to return.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said: In fact, Kevin DeBreiner, John Stones, Kyle Walker and Ilkay Gundogan have been absent due to injury, illness and other reasons. The only consolation was the addition of injured Jack Grealish and Phil Foden to the roster.
But against Watford, all of these players look set to return. “All players except Ferran Torres are ready to leave for London,” said coach Pep Guardiola at a press conference ahead of the 15th round of the 2021/22 season against Watford on the 3rd (Korean time).
He continued, “It’s much better. I said before the game against Aston Villa that I need everyone and it’s much better to have everyone.” As a result, Manchester City have all players joining the team, except for Ferran Torres, who is injured, as Guardiola said.
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola said: “Football should be grateful that he still has important people like Claudio Ranieri. What he has done in his career is amazing.” He added, “I admire Ranieri’s passion and energy. It will be great to see him again.”
In addition, he did not slow his vigilance towards Watford, saying, “We know exactly what the opponent wants. We have to be careful and make good performances.”
The match between Manchester City (10 wins, 2 draws, 2 losses, 32 points) and Watford (4 wins, 1 draw, 9 losses, 13 points) is scheduled for 2:30 am on the 5th in Korea time. In this matchup, Manchester City are aiming to reclaim the top spot and Watford are aiming to maintain the gap with the relegation zone.
