Oleksandr Zinchenko reassures Manchester City over ‘not so serious’ injury

Oleksandr Zinchenko reassures Manchester City over ‘not so serious’ injury

In spite of a lack of games due to the global break, the Spaniard notched up two assists in the three games Man city played, helping the team to nine points from three games in the Premier League.

The Argentina global, who is the Premier League's top scorer with 19 goals, missed City's 2-0 victory over relegation-threatened Cardiff City on Wednesday and was a doubt for Saturday's semi-final at Wembley.

"Danny Rose has not to do that (retire)", said Guardiola. "He knows the way we want to play", added Guardiola. (We are) not relaxed, but if we don't enjoy these moments... this is a moment for the big players. "Sergio Aguero is nearly fit. We came from nothing with that, now we have that, we'll see how far we're going to get". "But in the end you know, at Chelsea we have won a lot of trophies, they have not, so I hope this continues".

I've seen a focus in my players' eyes all week.

"People are not talking about Chelsea for the top four and I like that", said the Belgium forward.

The Belgian midfielder has had to be patient this season after suffering a number of injuries. "I try to be at the best level possible but I'm just trying to help the team win some titles".

Kevin De Bruyne believes his injury-blighted season means he will not be at his best for the rest of Manchester City's campaign.

Liverpool invested in new players before the start of the current season, spending about £177 million on the likes of Roma keeper Alisson, Naby Keita from Leipzig, Fabinho from Monaco and Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City.

We've scored 19 goals in four games, which is very good, and played open, attacking football throughout.

While four of the top six have won the Premier League trophy during the last 15 years, Spurs have not won the English title since 1961 or any competition since the 2008 League Cup.

"I don't expect to play every game but it's going to be important that everybody stays fresh because with the schedule we have and the importance of the games coming up, we will need nearly everybody probably", De Bruyne said.

"The occasion, the stadium, it's what you dreamt about as a young boy and hopefully we can get the job done".
