Spanish midfielder David Silva has been ruled out of Manchester City vs Liverpool Premier League match due to muscle injury.
The 33-year-old will miss the big encounter when Pep Guardiola's men travel to Anfield on Sunday, November 10, for the much anticipated game between the two best sides in England.
Silva sustained a muscle injury in Man City's narrow 2-1 victory Southampton. Sergio Aguero and Walker handed Blues late goals to hand them the vital win.
Giving an update on the Spaniard's injury, Guardiola said it would take Silva up to twelve days to be back in action for the English Champions.
“I don’t think so. I didn’t speak with the doctor, but when he has a muscular problem and cannot play more minutes, it’s because he has something,” Pep said
“When it’s a muscular problem, it’s always a minimum of 10 to 12 days. Five minutes before the first-half ended, he told me he had a muscular problem,” he posited.
Silva has also been confirmed to miss Wednesday’s Champions League match at Atalanta.
Meanwhile, Man City remain second on the EPL table six points behind league leader Liverpool who also put in a tough fight against what could have been their first Premier League defeat at Villa Park.
