Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed whether Phil Foden has recovered from his latest injury to be fit in time to face Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Just recently, the silky attacker had revealed that he started to feel pain in his foot once again and was hoping to recover ahead of the clash against Patrick Vieira’s men.
City fans were understandably concerned as before the 22-year-old has sparked back into form and furthermore, the Catalan manager had stated that a niggling foot problem forced him to rule himself out of contention for a period this season.
As Manchester City gear themselves up to lock horns against Crystal Palace, Pep Guardiola has disclosed whether Phil Foden has recovered from his injury to be fit for the contest.
Guardiola delivers Foden injury update ahead of Crystal Palace clash
The England international has been in sensational touch recently, as was on show against Newcastle United as he opened the scoring with a Lionel Messi-esque solo goal.
In his latest press conference, Pep Guardiola said that Phil Foden was no longer an injury doubt and can play against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, as per Manchester Evening News.
“Yeah, apparently he’s okay”, he briefly responded.
Incredible news for Manchester City
While both Manchester City and Arsenal are expected to drop points in the odd game until the end of the season, it feels as if the former certainly cannot afford to, especially while chasing a 5-point deficit.
Keeping that in mind, the fact that Phil Foden is ready to face Crystal Palace after his latest injury concern is a positive update for Manchester City as he remains one of their biggest game-changers in attack.
Considering Foden is one of the finest young players in world football, the last thing one wishes to see is for him to be held back by injuries.
