Manchester City to be without four players as they meet Liverpool in the Wembley FA Cup semi-final

Posted by

Liverpool and Manchester City meet once again, this time an FA Cup tie but there could be a few players out for the Citizens.

There are set to be four players missing the game, with the major comeback news being Ruben Dias’ return to the squad against Atletico Madrid.

News broke after their visit to the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium that both Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker are set to miss the trip to Wembley, through injury.

The duo join Cole Palmer and Benjamin Mendy as missing the game, so Pep Guardiola will be forced to make some changes to the squad.

Whether he would want to risk his Portuguese defender from the start will remain to be seen but let’s hope their fitness issues can give us an advantage.

The mental and physical toll of the trip to Spain could also affect the Spaniards selection choices, so let’s see if anyone else is set to miss the game.

  1. Lvpl need to use chamberlain in the midfield b’se he plays exactly like debryn. So lets add to pass upfront by playing ox n shoot shoot the way kevin meant to do for city

  2. Cole Palmer is mentioned here as one of the City players ‘missing’ the game???! Seriously? It’s like us saying that Adrian is not feeling well… good lord… they are missing TWO players, not 4!!!! Mendy will probably never play for them again and hasn’t been part of their squad In a very long time. Again, like us saying that Nat Phillips is on loan and not available… 😜😜😜

    Obviously missing DeBruyne is huge as he is their heart and Liverpool currently has no answer for him in our MF, he is better, faster, more energetic than anything we have. Glad he is not playing but Gundogan is a very able replacement, crafty, can score, not the same speed or insane energy though and that helps us! And he played in mid week too. All things considered and not being away from home anymore I’d say a 51-49 chance for Liverpool to win, no more than that. City is still, in my book, overall the better team 6 times out of 10. We must be absolutely at our best and if we are we can win. On a perfect day for both teams Liverpool wins, problem is that at this stage of the season, with tired legs and Minds, City’s style and individual quality is more likely to have a day closer to their best than we do. Go Reds!
