Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed Manchester City fullback Kyle Walker was taken off before the end of our 1-1 draw with Aston Villa due to injury.

Walker asked to be substituted with 10 minutes remaining and was replaced by the returning Nathan Ake.

While Guardiola confirmed the injury, he couldn’t reveal the nature and severity of the injury as he was yet to speak to the doctors.

“He had some problems in the first half and in the second and he could not continue,” Guardiola said.

“We will see how he is. I didn’t speak to the doctors.”
