David Silva could miss next week’s clash with Everton after picking up a hamstring injury in the 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday. The Spanish magician was forced off in the 68th minute at Stamford Bridge and appeared to be in discomfort as he clutched his hamstring.
He will join the likes of Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and Benjamin Mendy in City’s treatment room as the trio all missed Saturday’s trip to London.
Silva will not be missed when City return to Champions League action in midweek for the visit of Hoffenheim with Pep Guardiola’s side already certain of their place in the last 16.
But Guardiola will not be happy if the ex-Valencia star is not available for next week’s Premier League home game against Everton as City bid to keep pace with leaders Liverpool.
Silva has suffered two similar hamstring injuries in the past couple of seasons and on each occasion was out of action for between 14-19 days.
Speaking to City TV after the match, Phil Foden revealed that he has spoken to Silva about the injury. “I spoke to him at the end and he said he’s got a tight hamstring, so hopefully nothing too serious,” Foden said.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
