Kevin De Bruyne injury update, ahead of Liverpool

Manchester City have confirmed that Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker will miss out on Matchday Squad for the Liverpool match.

The Belgian was forced out of City’s latest game against Atletico Madrid. Meanwhile, England defender Kyle Walker too was also ‘forced out’ after sustaining an injury.

City Manager Pep Guardiola had confirmed the injuries of the lads but didn’t know about the severity of it. Now what comes as  ‘devastating news’ for all City supporters is that De Bruyne and Walker are out of the next game.

The severity of the Injury

According to the report by Jack Gaughan of Daily Mail, Kevin’s injury is more of an “impact injury” than a muscular one.

He further added that England International Kyle Walker is unlikely to be in the squad to face Liverpool. Man City players and its management definitely have a ‘big task’ in hand, going into their match against the Reds. With two of their “important” players set to miss out, Pep will have to look at other options.

Rematch – Liverpool v City

Liverpool and Man City had played out an enthralling draw, last weekend in the Premier League. This time both the PL Giants meets again, for a place in the finals of the “coveted” FA CUP.

Liverpool manager has a full-strength squad at his disposal after several players rested in the Second-Leg Benfica game.

Practically speaking Liverpool had the ‘liberty to bench’ crucial players, with a two-goal advantage over the Portuguese side.

However, Man City who were just leading by a single goal and did not have as much Liberty to rest against the ‘defending Spanish Champions’.

Man City who stayed strong and resilient in the tough times, could put down a good game against Liverpool. The Reds will also have to play out their best to progress to the finals, as they say, nothing comes easy.
