'Big trouble' - Pep Guardiola laments double injury blow before Liverpool semi-final in FA Cup


Manchester City duo Kyle Walker and Kevin de Bruyne were forced off with injuries during Wednesday's Champions League semi-finals 

Man City boss Pep Guardiola has said his side are in 'big trouble' ahead of their FA Cup semi-final fixture on Saturday against Liverpool.

City drew 0-0 against Spanish side Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night in a fiery affair which saw Atletico reduced to 10-men. But it was the injuries to Kyle Walker and Kevin de Bruyne which worried Guardiola after the final whistle. De Bruyne was replaced by Raheem Sterling and was seen with an ice pack around his right leg.

Walker, on the other hand, may be a more serious injury after he appeared to be in a lot of discomfort after clearing the ball. After trying to play on, the England defender was replaced by Nathan Ake and the City boss confirmed things are not looking good with a major fixture just days away at Wembley Stadium.

Speaking to BT Sports he said: "We are in big trouble, so we can't forget we played three days ago, travelled, come here, have a lot of injuries now and I don't know what will happen in the next weeks but today we celebrate because it is the third time in Manchester City's history we are in the Champions League semi-finals.

"We cannot play all the time and score four or five goals, we are human beings - we come from a difficult game against Liverpool."
