A gibberish. That is currently City’s defense to face Madrid. “I don’t know if Kyle will make it in time and it will be difficult for John as well.”. This is how Pep Guardiola responded when asked after the resounding victory against Watford (5-1) about the possibility that Walker and Stones will recover for tomorrow. In the club citizen they don’t have them all with them and classify them as “doubts”. The ray of hope was pointed out by the Santpedor coach prior to the clash against the Hornets, given that he pointed out that Walker was “much, much better” from his ankle injury. Neither will João Cancelo, sanctioned after seeing his third yellow card at the buzzer, against Atleti del Cholo.
The positive note is provided Nathan What, which presented discomfort but will be ready if required by his coach. And he could do it, although in a totally experimental position, as a right back. The centre-back, left-handed, has only played one match on that flank, but Laporte y reuben Dias target immovables in the center of defense. While Zinchenko is the only pure left back in the squad. Guardiola, questioned about this sudoku, slipped that even an attacking footballer could have to delay his position. All eyes on these doubts. The other footballer in the squad who can act as a right back is Stones, whose recovery is also complicated.
From thin to excess
While in attack, on the other hand, there is ‘overbooking’. Gabriel Jesus vindicated himself with a poker on Saturday against Watford and aims to start. Mahrez will accompany you. rodri, Bernardo Silva y De Bruyne They have the place secured. So come in Sterling, The foot y Gundogan they will compete for a place, with the first as the main candidate. Manchester City’s attacking front is usually praised, but the rearguard is a fort (43 goals conceded in 50 games, 0.86 per match). Nevertheless, at the key moment of the season the defense skyblue is in suspense Double puzzle for Guardiola, who goes from a thin rearguard to an attack with excess baggage.
