Pep Guardiola, the curse


By: Manu Tournoux

As the Premier League title race heats up, Pep Guardiola and Manchester City could be without seven key players for the match against Arsenal.

As the international break draws to a close, the Premier League title race between Liverpool, Arsenal and City will resume, but Guardiola's side will be at a greater disadvantage than they were before the break. Injuries to Matheus Nunes, Manuel Akanji, John Stones and Kyle Walker during their international stay reinforced the Citizens' injured list already made up of Ederson, Kevin de Bruyne and Jack Grealish.

According to the Daily Mail, Walker is very doubtful for the next match against Mikel Arteta's Arsenal. However, he will undergo medical examinations when he returns with his colleague John Stones. The report also states that the Manchester club are monitoring the situation of Ederson, De Bruyne and Grealish and will make a final check on the trio.

Arsenal is also cursed

Arteta and Arsenal also have their own injury problems heading into the game, with players like Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Magalhaes withdrawing from their international squads without playing a single match. The Spanish coach will have to make a late decision on the inclusion of these two players.

With the clash against Arsenal fast approaching, Man City will have to make a quick decision on their squad before the Gunners travel to the Etihad Stadium on March 31.
