Man City suffer David Silva blow

Manchester City veteran David Silva is out of the title showdown with Premier League leaders Liverpool on Sunday.

City's captain suffered a muscular injury in the first-half of Saturday's 2-1 win over Southampton, says the Mirror.

Asked if Silva will be fit to face Liverpool, City boss Pep Guardiola said: “I don't think so.

“I didn't speak with the doctor, but when he has a muscular problem and cannot play more minutes, it's because he has something.

“When it's a muscular problem, it's always a minimum of 10 to 12 days.

“Five minutes before the first-half ended, he told me he had a muscular problem."
