The Premier League champions have suffered an extensive injury list so far this season, and now they could potentially be adding another name to the treatment table.
Should Manchester City sign a central defender in January?
Manchester City left-back Angelino was taken off with just over ten minutes remaining of their 3-1 Carabao Cup win over Southampton with an injury, prompting fans to react in a disheartened manner to another potential blow.
Along with the likes of Rodrigo, Leroy Sane, Aymeric Laporte and Oleksandr Zinchenko – the Spanish defender could be joining them in being out for the foreseeable future depending on the extent of the knock.
The left-back position has long been an achilles heel to this City side, and now Benjamin Mendy – a player known for repeated injury struggles – looks to be their only option in the role.
As a result, supporters have reacted with real concern and frustration, taking to Twitter and wishing Angelino a speedy recovery with hopes that it won’t be serious.
