Pep Guardiola makes Kevin De Bruyne injury admission ahead of Tottenham Carabao Cup final


Pep Guardiola has offered an update on the injury sustained by Kevin De Bruyne ahead of next weekend’s Carabao Cup final.

De Bruyne limped off three minutes into the second half of Manchester City’s FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea on Saturday evening, and his absence proved costly.

Chelsea went on to take the lead through Hakim Ziyech and they saw out the win, advancing to the FA Cup final at the expense of City, who have now lost the opportunity of winning the quadruple.

But the treble is still on and Man City will be desperate to get De Bruyne back ahead of their Carabao Cup final with Tottenham on Sunday at Wembley Stadium.

De Bruyne appeared to suffer an ankle injury, and after the game, Guardiola offered an update of sorts, saying: “I don’t know – he has pain.

“Tomorrow we’re going to make a test with the doctors but it doesn’t look good. We will see tomorrow.”

City fans will be hoping for good news when Guardiola next gives an update, with his side still fighting on three fronts this season, and looking set to cruise to the Premier League title, with the semi-finals of the Champions League and the Carabao Cup final on the horizon.

Spurs, on the other hand, have struggled to live up to expectations and are now very unlikely to secure a top four finish, instead battling it out for a place in the top six.

De Bruyne is key to Man City, though the Citizens do have other options with the very impressive Phil Foden coming off the bench to replace the Belgian on Saturday evening.

Guardiola has a wealth of options at his disposal and he may now shuffle the pack a little with a Premier League contest with Aston Villa on Wednesday before that final with Spurs,
