Man City hit by new Covid cases, says Guardiola


Pep Guardiola has revealed Manchester City have suffered some fresh cases of coronavirus within their first-team group this week. City were without 21 personnel, including manager Guardiola himself and seven senior players, for last week’s FA Cup third-round win at Swindon after positive tests for Covid-19. The new cases are offset by the return of others but Guardiola was unable to reveal much detail at a press conference to preview Saturday’s game against Chelsea. The City boss said: “Some people are coming, some people are positive again. When you have tested once, twice negative you come back. Otherwise not. “We have some new cases but they want privacy, so I cannot tell you.”
