Pep Guardiola was speaking before the game against Burnley. As Chelsea will testify, they are not your average walkover team. Especially when you are trying to win the league and have two gaping injuries.
Pep Guardiola is the man in the middle here, and is being worried by injuries at the worst time possible. For us though, it gives motive to stay on top of our game and maybe take it to the last day. As City could tell, that is a whole world different than now.
Now, Kevin De Bruyne is still out, after the injury he picked up against Tottenham. The other is veteran defensive midfielder Fernandinho. The Brazilian was injured winning possession from Pogba.
That gives some relief to Burnley in midfield, or perhaps even some belief. We will see!
“He’s still not fit, but he’s getting better,”
“We’ll see tomorrow, he has a problem with the knee,”
