Manchester City’s Aymeric Laporte and Fernandinho to miss five vital games

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed that Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte could miss the club’s next five games through injury.

Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho hobbled off late into City’s Carabao Cup final win over Chelsea after Laporte, 24, was withdrawn at half-time with a hamstring problem.

And Guardiola has now suggested that he will wait until after the international break to bring back the injured duo, meaning they would miss games against West Ham, Bournemouth, Watford, Schalke, and Swansea City.

“We were without Gabriel and John Stones, and they are still out, and now we are without Fernandinho and Aymeric as well,” he told reporters.
