With the Premier League kicking into high gear, every game and every player is crucial for teams to maintain winning records. Unfortunately for Manchester City, the club is down one more teammate this week because of an injury received during gameplay.
David Silva, one of Man City’s chief playmakers on the pitch, could be out of action for three to four weeks because of a calf injury he sustained during Tuesday’s game against CSKA Moscow. Despite Silva leaving the field midway through the second half of the game, Man City succeeded in triumphing over their challengers to etch out another win on their standings – though the absence of Silva will undoubtedly be felt in future games.
Captain Vincent Kompany has also been sidelined for the past six games due to a thigh injury. Manuel Pellegrini, former player and current manager of Manchester City, says Kompany should return to the field in 2 weeks just in time for the game against Tottenham on November 24.
Striker Stevan Jovetic is also sitting on the sidelines because of a previous game injury to his calf, but midfielder Fernando Luiz Roza and defender Matija Nastasic plan to return to play on Sunday’s game against Sunderland.
