In a recent interview, Pep Guardiola admitted his side Manchester City could face major difficulties ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool. The team had to put up a fiery battle to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League, where they now face Real Madrid.
Pep Guardiola is concerned for his side after their two players were injured in the clash against Atletico Madrid. Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker are being evaluated by doctors for their injuries. However, the Spanish manager also stressed that they won’t sit unhappily and celebrate the win against Atletico as City have reached the semi-finals for the third consecutive time in his club’s history.
“We are in big trouble. We can’t forget that we played a tough game against Liverpool three days ago. We came here, we have a lot of injuries‘ said Guardiola.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen in the next few weeks, but today we’re going to celebrate. It’s the third time in Manchester City’s history that we’ve reached the semi-finals of the Champions League and it’s a great achievement for us to be theree,” added the Spaniard.
Manchester City will have a tough time in the coming weeks as they look to continue their Premier League title race. They meet a strong Liverpool side in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday and another Spanish giants, Real Madrid, in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.
Manchester City can win the treble this season under Pep Guardiola
Manchester City could likely win the treble this season as they are chasing all three titles and this could be the ‘dream season’ of winning the treble including Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.
However, Pep Guardiola looks worried about the injuries ahead of this Sunday’s FA Cup game against Liverpool but believes his other players can put up a good fight unless De Bruyne, Foden and Walker are absolutely fit to play.
