Pep Guardiola has admitted his biggest fear is the prospect of witnessing more players on the treatment table. Manchester City have been ravaged by injuries over the last few months, but the club has been able to maintain the push for a quadruple going on. This has been largely possible due to a very large squad at the disposal of the former Bayern Munich manager. However, even that has been stretched in the last few weeks with a number of players unavailable due to injuries.
“I pray, pray, that they come back fit.They have to go to their national teams, they have to go, enjoy and play for their country, but I hope they can come back fit like they are now.Maybe they will go away, score three goals and return with the same rhythm, who knows? I just want them fit and here. Sergio, David Silva, Aymeric Laporte and a few others will have a week’s rest. They will have a training programme to do a little bit each day and then a week of normal training ahead of the Fulham game,” said Guardiola.
