Kyle Walker is expected to miss Wednesday’s Champions League clash between Manchester City and FC Copenhagen, manager Pep Guardiola has said.
The England right-back was substituted in a stroke in City’s 6-3 win over Manchester United on Sunday.
Midfielder Rodri missed the derby with a calf problem but will be tested ahead of the Group G clash at the Etihad Stadium.
Guardiola said at his pre-match press conference: “We’re going to train this afternoon and we’ll know for sure. Rodri is feeling better and I think Kyle is out but we’ll wait for the training session.
Erling Haaland continues to dominate the headlines at City after continuing his impressive start at the club with a hat-trick against United.
It was the prolific Norwegian’s third straight treble in home games in the league and he has already struck 17 times for City in just 11 games in all competitions.
Guardiola said of the 22-year-old: “Nobody can match him at his age.
“The numbers speak for themselves and inside, in the dressing room and on the pitch we see things that aren’t in the stats that make us happy to have him here.”
