Manchester City lose Premier League before it’s begun, says the Sun
It’s panic stations at Manchester City. The Premier League season hasn’t even started and City are doomed. Utter balls, of course. But, then, we did read it on the Sun, which tells of City “HELL” and “a player crisis” for the big Premier League kick-off.
Boss Manuel Pellegrini watched in horror as new boy Fabian Delph was taken off on a stretcher 18 minutes into his debut — as City were torn apart 4-1 by Real Madrid in Melbourne.
What will City do without their nth choice midfielder?
And Pell then admitted that star striker Sergio Aguero, midfielder Fernandinho and defenders Pablo Zabaleta and Martin Demichelis could also miss the opener at West Brom on August 10.
“Admitted” that players who took part in the Copa America might not figure in the season’s opener – a stance in keeping with Arsenal and all other clubs who saw their men in South America?
It’s going to be a long season.
