Pep Guardiola has gained a reputation among FPL users for being tricky to predict, but injury concerns at the Etihad Stadium are making some team selection decisions unsurprising. Speaking ahead of his side’s away match against Wolves, the Spaniard revealed: “John (Stones) is not ready. Kevin (De Bruyne) is not ready. Bernardo (Silva) is not okay – I think the rest are fine though maybe someone else that I don’t have in my mind.” Rodri is also ruled out of the match through suspension after he was shown a straight red card against Nottingham Forest.
Ange Postecoglou was unable to clarify whether James Maddison or Heung-min Son would definitely be fit for the match against Liverpool, though he did rule Brennan Johnson out with a short-term injury. The Aussie explained: “From last week, Brennan will miss out. It’s nothing too serious but he won’t be right for this weekend. Madders and Sonny trained today, they got through it, and we’ll have to see how they pull up.” When asked by a journalist whether he should put Maddison in his team, Postecoglou remained on the fence and cheekily replied: “You can do whatever you like, it’s of zero interest to me!”
