Most in form player in Premier League could return against Arsenal
Man City beat Everton despite missing one of their in form players in Ilkay Gundogan. The midfielder got injured days before the game with Tottenham and he could be back sooner rather than later.
In the press conference at Goodison Park, Guardiola said that the German "is much, much better" and admitted that he did not play against Everton in order to not put too much pressure on him.
"The injury is not a big problem, but we've given him a few more days to recover to avoid taking risks. But he should be ready to face Arsenal and Borussia Monchengladbach," Pep said.
Gundogan earned the player of the month award in the Premier League for January and he has become one of Man City's main men. He has adapted to Guardiola's latest changes, he has made Gundogan stronger and hopes to have him for the business end of the season.
"Of course 'Gundo' is exceptional. We're talking about that. If you want to win trophies and finals, we need the whole squad," the City boss concluded.
