PEP GUARDIOLA PREVIEW

Pep Guardiola says Phil Foden is improving as he recovers from a foot injury sustained in the Manchester derby.

The England playmaker missed the 3-0 win over Wolves as a result of the knock he received at Old Trafford, but the boss confirmed the 22 year-old is recovering well and could train on Thursday afternoon ahead of Friday evening’s FA Cup tie with Arsenal.

Asked how Foden’s injury was, Guardiola said: “It is getting better, we have training this afternoon.

The boss also revealed there are no other injury concerns ahead of the game against the Gunners.

When asked how the rest of the squad were, he replied: “Good.”

PREVIOUS MEETING

It’s been over a year since we last faced the Gunners.

On New Year’s Day 2022, Pep Guardiola’s side edged an enthralling encounter at the Emirates Stadium, as we came from behind to claim three points.

Bukayo Saka had given the hosts a half-time lead, before Riyad Mahrez equalised from the penalty spot shortly after the interval.

Tempers were flaring in the capital and the fixture reached fever pitch when Gabriel was sent off for the Gunners with over 30-minutes remaining.

With the match looking likely to end in a draw, Rodrigo snatched a vital three points for City when prodding home deep into injury time.

LAST TIME OUT

Erling Haaland’s netted his fourth Premier League hat-trick of the season as we put Wolves to the sword 3-0.

The Norway international made it to 25 Premier League goals in the Premier League – 31 in all competitions – following a masterclass in finishing at the Etihad.

His first came on 40 minutes when he coolly headed home Kevin De Buryne’s pinpoint cross from the right.

The 22-year-old then doubled his tally from the penalty spot five minutes after half-time, before claiming the match ball four minutes later with a cushioned effort past Jose Sa.
