Bad news for Benjamin Mendy after Man City 5 – Burnley 0

Benjamin Mendy’s injury setback

French World Cup winner Benjamin Mendy was absent for Man City on Saturday in the FA Cup against Burnley.

Mendy just returned from injury last week in the Carabao Cup.

The left-back played 30 minutes in midweek as the Sky Blues beat Burton Albion 1-0.

Following the Burton game there was little to suggest that Mendy could have suffered a setback.

However, following his absence against Burnley in the cup, Pep Guardiola revealed the following:

He has a little bit of swelling in the knee, and that’s all. It’s a danger you can have sometimes when you come back. He needs time. It is a problem, but it’s ok. We move forward and hopefully he can come back soon.

Watch Guardiola’s full presser after Burnley below.

Newcastle vs Man City

Man City travel to Newcastle on Tuesday night in the Premier League.

At this stage it feels unlikely that Mendy will be involved against the Magpies.

Man City then host Arsenal at the Etihad next Sunday.

Will Mendy be back for the Gunners?

Man City 5 – Burnley 0

Man City destroyed Burnley 5-0 in the FA Cup.

For the record, Guardiola’s men could still win the quadruple this season.

Kevin De Bruyne starred for the Sky Blues, while the Belgian scored a long range stunner for City’s third.

Gabriel Jesus broke the deadlock before Bernardo Silva cashed in with a second. A Kevin Long own goal handed City their fourth, while a Sergio Aguero penalty wrapped up the win.
