Manchester City give Kevin De Bruyne injury update ahead of Carabao Cup final against Tottenham Hotspur

Speaking to BBC (h/t Daily Mail) after his team’s loss on Saturday, Pep Guardiola gave a worrying injury update on Manchester City midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne, ahead of their clash against Tottenham Hotspur.

City took on an in-form Chelsea in the semi-final of the FA Cup this weekend. The two teams went into half-time with the score at 0-0, but things turned bad for City in the second half.

Their Belgian maestro was forced off with an injury just 3 minutes into the second 45 minutes. And just 7 minutes later, they conceded the only goal of the game, which came via Hakim Ziyech.

And Guardiola admitted after the game that De Bruyne’s injury “doesn’t look good”. City, of course, have a Carabao Cup final against Tottenham next weekend at Wembley.

“He has pain. Tomorrow they are going to test, but they tell me it doesn’t look good.”

A golden chance

While the footballing world, including Spurs fans, would wish a speedy recovery to the 29-year-old, his absence in the final can really turn the tide of the match.

Tottenham have a chance to win silverware next weekend

The superstar midfielder missed a few games earlier this season due to a hamstring injury. But apart from that, he has been a massive part of City’s Premier League and UEFA Champions League title run.

This is also Spurs’ biggest chance to win silverware in a while. Their last trophy, which was ironically the League Cup itself, came close to 13 years back in 2008.

And this would also mark Jose Mourinho and Harry Kane’s first trophy at the club. But Spurs would know that even if De Bruyne doesn’t play, they would have to be on their guard against a club that has won the competition 5 times in the last 7 years.
