Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that he will be without Bacary Sagna in the match against Chelsea tomorrow night but revealed that Pablo Zabaleta is recovered after suffering a minor injury last week:
“Bacary is out two or three weeks more,” Guardiola told reporters.
“Pablo is okay.
The Spanish coach also said that Gabriel Jesus, who broke his foot in February and was set to miss the rest of the season, could recover for the last games of the campaign:
“Yesterday is the first day he started to go to the pitch to run and walk.
“I don’t know exactly how many weeks he needs to come back but I think he is at the end of the part of his process to come back so we will see.
“Hopefully he can help us in the games at the end of the season.”
Speaking about the title race and the Champions League race, he said:
“Yeah it is so important for all 6 teams to qualify for the Champions League.
“To be in Europe is so important. In financial terms and in prestige.
“Chelsea deserve to be where they are. They won an amount of points and winning an amount of games in a row.
“It is another game, nine left, we have to take points as much as possible and after we will see.”
