Chelsea has put an end to Man City quadruple dream. The injury to Kevin De Bruyne, who is still chasing a trophy, maybe even more worrying.
After Hakim Ziyech’s 1-0 victory over City on Saturday, Chelsea will return to Wembley Stadium for the FA Cup final next month.
Pep Guardiola will lead City to the League Cup final next Sunday, but there are questions on whether De Bruyne will be fit to face Tottenham.
Guardiola said, “It doesn’t look quite good,” “But we’ll see what happens tomorrow.”
With City entering a crucial time of the season, the powerful Belgian playmaker hobbled off with an apparent ankle injury.
With an 11-point lead in the Premier League, Man City is a near-certainty to win the championship, but Guardiola will also play in his first Champions League semifinal with City against Paris Saint-Germain in what remains the club’s priority title.
City midfielder Fernandinho said, “We started the game a little bit late and struggled a little bit in the first half.”
Following Frank Lampard’s dismissal, the German now has a chance to win a trophy in the FA Cup final against Leicester or Southampton next month. Chelsea, like Man City, is still in the Champions League hunt, with Real Madrid waiting in the final four.
“Everything is still available, and everyone is excited about it,” Ziyech said. “And we can’t wait to play these games,” says the group.
Thomas Tuchel will be encouraged by his team’s success against Man City. Though Timo Werner has had difficulty scoring goals, he has had less trouble with assists.
It was his 12th of the season, and he set up Ziyech for a close-range finish in an unguarded net after American goalkeeper Zack Steffen was left stranded in the 55th minute.
“It was a successful delivery, and I was able to quickly put it in,” Ziyech said. “I still have a lot of work to do, but I believe I am on the right track.”
