Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has given an update on the injury situation at the club on the Citizens’ official Twitter page, and it is not good news for Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham will take on City away from home at the Etihad Stadium in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie on Wednesday evening.

 

Spurs won the first leg of the tie 1-0 at White Hart Lane and will fancy their chances of getting the job done in Manchester on Wednesday evening.

City manager Guardiola’s injury update, though, is not good for Spurs, with the Barcelona manager stating that star striker Sergio Aguero - who has scored 19 goals in the Premier League and five in the Champions League so far this season, according to WhoScored - is fit.

The former Bayern Munich boss has also stated that Brazil international defensive midfielder Fernandinho trained yesterday, meaning that the 33-year-old could fully recover from his injury and at least be on the substitutes’ bench against City.

Aguero is one of the best strikers in the world and Fernandinho a force in the middle of the park, and if the two players start on Wednesday, then it is going to be very hard for Tottenham to win or even draw.
