Concern for Man City as in-form Ilkay Gundogan hobbles out of Tottenham clash

Manchester City have this evening been dealt a potentially damaging blow on the personnel front, after Ilkay Gundogan was forced off during the club’s meeting with Tottenham.

Citizens cruising

The marquee fixture of the Premier League weekend is currently playing out at the Etihad.

The clash sees rivalries renewed between two of football’s most high-profile managers, with Pep Guardiola’s Man City playing host to Jose Mourinho’s Spurs.

It was of course the former who headed into proceedings as favourites to bag all 3 points, amid a historic spell of form of late.

And, as things stand, this is precisely what City are headed towards.

The Sky Blues currently lead by 3 goals to nil, courtesy of a first-half Rodri penalty, followed by an Ilkay Gundogan brace shortly after the interval:

The latter’s latest pair of goals of course come amid a remarkable spell of form on the part of the German midfielder, who has established himself as one of European football’s most clinical finishers since the turn of the year.

Hobble

As outlined above, however, just when Gundogan appeared to be establishing himself as the kind of player whom City’s fans had so long hoped he would prove to be, the former Borussia Dortmund man has been dealt a blow.

This comes with Gundogan, shortly after netting his 2nd of the evening, having been forced to limp from the field of the play.

The 30-year-old pulled up holding his groin, with tests over the days to come no doubt set to reveal the extent of the damage done.
