Huge blow for Senegal. Sadio Mané was injured yesterday in Bayern Munich's 6-1 win over Werder Bremen after 20 minutes of play, but he will not be present at the 2022 World Cup with Senegal. The 30-year-old winger will not participate in his second consecutive World Cup in Qatar. He is suffering from a tendon injury and will be absent for several weeks. Aliou Cissé's list will be revealed this Friday.
Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said in a press conference on Tuesday that Erling Haaland had not yet recovered from a foot injury. Pep Guardiola is not expected to start his striker against Chelsea this Wednesday (9 pm), for the third round of the League Cup and probably not until the World Cup, in which Norway does not participate.
The third round of the English League Cup, which takes place between two Premier League matches, could allow the two coaches of Manchester City and Chelsea, Pep Guardiola and Graham Potter, to rotate their squad, particularly given the World Cup in Qatar. The Spanish coach's Cityzens, who are second in the Premier League, are favourites to beat Chelsea, who are seventh in the English league.
