Lucky Chelsea! 2 Man city stars set to miss big game due to injury

Benjamin Mendy continues with his rehabilitation after undergoing knee surgery in November, despite making his comeback in the recent win at Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup. And Kompany is yet to recover from the muscle problem he picked up in the win over Liverpool at the tun of the year.

Asked if either would be foot for the weekend, Guardiola said: “No. “Mendy is injured and it’s not easy. Meniscus. It is not easy. He needs to re-adapt. “You can’t return and train for two days and you are fit. You have to be careful.”

Meanwhile, Guardiola says he has been impressed with Maurizio Sarri’s impact since taking the reins at Chelsea in the summer. The West London side have been in patchy form in 2019, but they remain involved in four competitions.

Guardiola, who praised Sarri’s work at Napoli when City met the Italian side in the Champions League last season, says he could see a different Chelsea as far back as August in the Community Shield. “People believed managers arrive at good clubs and immediately create something,” he said. “My feeling when I saw Chelsea at Community Shield was they were already there.

“They have been exceptional. Final of Carabao Cup, in Europa League, and Premier League they are there. “They are nine behind with one less game and in the FA Cup they are there as well. “I see them play and I recognise exactly what they want to do.”

For the first time in almost two months, Manchester City sit top of the Premier League table courtesy of Wednesday night’s 2-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park. The champions could be back in a position of playing catch-up by the time they welcome Chelsea to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, though, with Liverpool in action at home to Bournemouth on Saturday.

City’s first defeat of the campaign came at the hands of Maurizio Sarri’s side, and they know that another this weekend would undo a lot of the hard work they have put in to wipe out what was once a seven-point deficit at the top of the table. Pep Guardiola was able to leave out the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling in midweek and the rest came through unscathed, leaving no new injury concerns.
