Guardiola injury headache grows as Silva faces spell out, leaving City with '15 players available'

David Silva.

Manchester City have only 15 fit senior players available for Wednesday's Champions League clash with Hoffenheim, manager Pep Guardiola has said.

Playmaker David Silva is the latest addition to an injury list that already includes Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Benjamin Mendy and Claudio Bravo.

"We have 15 players available," Guardiola said at a press conference.

Guardiola revealed that Silva could be out for "a few weeks" with a muscular injury.

Full-back Danilo is also sidelined but Aguero, who has missed the last three games with a groin problem, could return to face Everton at the weekend.
