    Pep Guardiola provides Ilkay Gundogan injury update after Man City’s loss to Brighton

    Man City downed by Brighton

    Manchester City played out their penultimate game of the Premier League season on Tuesday evening.

    The Citizens faced off with Brighton at the Amex, with fans having of course been back in the stadium for the first time this campaign.

    And those in attendance on Tuesday were treated to a thoroughly entertaining 90 minutes.

    Ilkay Gundogan fired the visitors into the lead after just two minutes, before Joao Cancelo was shown a straight red card eight minutes later.

    Despite going down to ten men, though, it was City who netted next, as Phil Foden surged forward 48 minutes in to bag a spectacular solo goal:

    Brighton, however, did not give up, and pulled one back just a few moments later, via Leandro Trossard:

    Adam Webster then drew the hosts level with just under 20 minutes remaining, before the Seagulls added a 3rd four minutes later to secure a huge three points:

    The result, all told, however, meant little for either side.

    Man City, instead, were no doubt more concerned when, after going down following a heavy tackle in the first-half, Ilkay Gundogan was forced off shortly after the break as a precaution:

    With the Champions League final coming up later this month, the City faithful were, in turn, left sweating over the fitness of one of their standout performers this season.

    When drawn on the German post-match, though, Pep Guardiola provided a fairly positive update, confirming that City’s medical team appeared ‘optimistic’:

    “We will see tomorrow, the doctor is optimistic, he had a kick and he was running in the second half with a disturbance so we made the change not to take a risk.”
