Man United will be looking to bounce back after crashing out of the UCL as they are handed a morale boosting update ahead of the game against City
Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola is left with worry as he would have to battle Man United without some key players.
A United side who look to recoup from their UEFA Champions League exit currently have their eyes locked to the top four and crumbling City is considered a top priority in order to achieve this long term aim.
Speaking to City’s official website, the former Barca manager told of his men’s absence.Embed from Getty Images
“Eric is not fit,” he said at his pre-match press conference as he confirms Eric Garcia’s absence.
“He will be out for two or three weeks. Ilkay trained good.”
Garcia picked up a knock during his side’s battle against Marseille and has been confirmed sidelined for couple of weeks.

Another absent name is Sergio Agüero who is also confirmed to be sidelined as he is yet to recover from the aftermath of the UCL game.
Meanwhile at the other end, it’s yet to be disclosed if Edinson Cavani is back to the line up yet after his strange injury.
Paul Pogba comes as an addition after his last EPL performance but the question remains if he will remain consistent.
