Man City to be without 11 first-team players against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup

Man City to be without 11 first-team players against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup clash.

For their Carabao Cup match against Liverpool tomorrow, Manchester City will be without 11 key players.

That’s according to the Manchester Evening News, who gives a run-down of the current state of play at City. Firstly, there’s some potentially bad news for Liverpool, as both Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan are said to be in line to feature.

Additionally, Rodri, Manuel Akanji, and Nathan Ake have resumed their training.

The trio, it is alleged, won’t likely be “rushed back” to face the Reds. The city’s team will reportedly be “makeshift” as a result.

That was always expected to be the case for this one given that 16 players of the first team competed at the World Cup.

Additionally, Pep Guardiola has limited options this time around because a large number of those players advanced to the competition’s knockout stages.

The list of City’s absentees is astonishing, even though Anfield won’t be sympathetic.

Defensive colleagues Ederson, Aymeric Laporte, Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo, Kyle Walker, and John Stones are all yet to return to training. The likes of Bernardo Silva, Julian Alvarez, Kalvin Phillips, Phil Foden, and Jack Grealish are also still away.

Ominously, Erling Haaland is said to have had some ‘time off’ and is expected to start against Liverpool. 

Meanwhile, the likes of Stefan Ortega, Riyad Mahrez Sergio Gomez, and Cole Palmer are also in-line to play.
