Manchester City has a total of seven players sidelined through injury as they travel to London to face Tottenham Hotspur later today. The long queue of injured players for the club includes play maker David Silva, Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfried Bony who are expected to return in the first week of October. While Gael Clichy and Mangala, would be returning later that month. Summer signing Fabian Delph is yet to make an appearance for the team this season due to a hamstring injury. Manchester City appears to be the only Premier League club that can have this much star players on the sidelines and still have so much to offer and that is because of the depth of their squad. Manchester City has a lot of options in different roles but their match against Sunderland in the Capital One Cup required that the club need do with the available squad. City went on to win the match 4-1 with Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling all on the score sheet.
City’s manager, Manuel Pellegrini is hopeful that Samir Nasir, Pablo Zabeleta and his team captain Vincent Kompany would be available for selection today against Sunderland. With Aguero who missed most of the match against Juventus due to injury back to fitness, the manager is hoping the team could move on from their last week’s defeat to West Ham and win in London. Summer signings Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne are also available, with the later impressing against West Ham. Though they lost that match, his performance shows that he doesn’t need a whole season to adapt to the Premier League he left a season ago and that’s one reason why City spent so much on him.
