Man City: Phillips ‘doubt’ after pre-Aston Villa injury update

Man City: Phillips ‘doubt’ after pre-Aston Villa injury update -Manchester City News

Manchester City summer signing Kalvin Phillips is a ‘doubt’ for today’s Premier League clash against Aston Villa after a pre-match injury update.

The Lowdown: City off to a flying start…

The Sky Blues are off to a flying start this season and remain unbeaten over their first five top flight matches, even coming back from behind in two of them to clinch results.

Pep Guardiola’s side have chalked up victories against West Ham, Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth with only Newcastle managing to come away with a point against City so far.

Marquee summer addition Erling Haaland has taken to life in English football by storm, netting nine goals in his first five matches for the champions, but it appears another transfer window coup in Phillips remains unavailable.

The Latest: Phillips ‘doubt’ before Villa…

The England international has been out with a shoulder injury over the last fortnight and it remains to be seen if he can return against Villa today.

Man City’s official website explains Phillips is a ‘doubt’ for the clash with Steven Gerrard’s side and hasn’t featured since limping off in a 3-3 charity match against Barcelona.

The Verdict: Dampener…

The former Leeds star will want to get back to full fitness quickly as he aims to battle Rodri for a place in Guardiola’s defensive midfield.

Phillips was a ‘superstar’ at Elland Road, but in a City team loaded with quality and big names, the ‘special player’ will have to contend for a regular spot at Eastlands sooner rather than later.
