Manchester City leaders Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero don’t have time to recover for the Premier League match against Chelsea on Saturday.

Last weekend, the Citizens’ manager Pep Guardiola specifically saved Aguero, who, he said, was “on the verge of injury.” However, Sergio injured adductor muscle on Monday’s training.

The 30-year-old Argentinean, who scored 10 goals in 16 games this season, missed the 1:2 victory over Watford in the middle of the week, and would also miss Saturday’s departure at Stamford Bridge.

As for De Bruyne, his recovery after the second knee injury during the current season is delayed. Kevin won’t be able to play against his former club, but it’s not long to wait for his return.

Guardiola told that at a press conference before the match. According to him, playing at Stamford Bridge is always a very difficult thing for him. He was there many times but was able to win only once – in the last season.
