Must read

Manchester City opened their 2020/21 Champions League campaign with a 3-1 win over Porto, but the victory came at a cost. 
Fernandinho was withdrawn with a leg injury after and now looks set to miss at least a month of action. 
The 35-year-old midfielder was only introduced as an 85th-minute substitute at the Etihad but had to be replaced by John Stones after suffering a leg injury in stoppage time.
Pep Guardiola confirmed Fernandinho faces several weeks on the sidelines.
“It is bad news,” the manager said after the game.
“It is a problem in his leg. I think he will be out for four to six weeks. It is a big blow for us, with the amount of games.”
Guardiola had a more positive update on De Bruyne and Laporte.
 “I think Kevin and Laporte start training tomorrow but I don’t know how they will be tomorrow and the next days so we will see,” Guardiola said.
“Unfortunately people came back and now we have lost another but it is really important to come back.  
“In three days we go to London [to play West Ham in the Premier League] and after we travel to France to play against Marseille and then Sheffield three days after. The schedules are so demanding and we need all the players.”
In reaction to the injury update shared on Twitter by Man City Xtra, Man City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.
