Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has revealed that winger Jeremy Doku has picked up a muscular injury ahead of his side’s Premier League tie with Liverpool on Sunday.

Guardiola didn’t include Doku in Man City’s match-day squad for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League last 16 win against FC Copenhagen on Wednesday night.

Man City will travel to Anfield this weekend for what could be the biggest game of their season, with the sides separated by just one point at the top of the Premier League table.

A win against the Reds would put them top and surely make them clear favourites for the title ahead of Liverpool and Arsenal, respectively.

But they may be without Doku, whose absence for the Copenhagen match was explained by Guardiola before kick-off:

“HE HAD SOME MUSCULAR PROBLEMS SO WE DID NOT WANT TO TAKE THE RISK,” HE SAID.

Doku missed eight matches last December with a muscle injury.

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, had admitted that Arsenal deserve to win their Premier League clash on Sunday.

The Reds were beaten 3-1 at the Emirates, their second defeat of the campaign.

Bukayo Saka opened the scoring for the Gunners, before they conceded an equalizer thanks to a defensive mix-up.

However, in the second half, goals from Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard sealed the win for Arsenal.

Klopp, speaking to Sky Sports, said:

“In general we can admit that Arsenal deserve the three points.

“The circumstances were a bit strange. The goal for us was similar to the cup game. In the cup game we had even bigger chances.

“We scored the goal at half-time and having nil shots on target, but a goal is a bit stranger. We had to adapt in a lot of moments today.

“We found our way into the game, we had crosses and situations where it was close and then the second half. But if you cannot keep it open, then Arsenal might become a little nervous.

“The red card did not help and we had to change what we tried a lot.”

African goalkeeper, Ronwen Williams has revealed how he feels about their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, semifinal pairing with Nigeria.

William saved as much as four penalties as South Africa beat Cape Verde 2-1 on penalties in the quarterfinal at the Charles Konan Banny Stadium in Yamoussoukro on Saturday.

The Super Eagles and the Bafana Bafana will tread tackles at the Stade de la Paix, Bouaké on Wednesday, February 7.

The 32-year-old goalkeeper has admitted that he is excited about the prospect of facing the Super Eagles with Victor Osimhen

Ronwen Williams told reporters in the mixed zone after the win against Cape Verde,

“It’s special just to be part of the Africa Cup of Nations, seeing all these amazing African players playing in big teams in Europe, doing wonderful things so we are just glad we can show our worth as well as South Africans.

“We know it’s going to be a big one coming up so we need to prepare accordingly and we are looking forward to the challenge.”
