Manchester City star Phil Foden is struggling with a foot injury that could rule him out of Friday’s FA Cup clash against Arsenal.

Foden, who has started just three Premier League matches since mid-October, suffered the problem during the 2-1 defeat at Manchester United on January 14.

“It was an action at Old Trafford, a jump with (Aaron) Wan-Bissaka. He fell down and had a problem with his feet,” said Guardiola. 

“He’s been struggling with it. It’s painful. After two or three days’ rest it gets better and he starts (playing) and goes down.”

“So, we have decided for him to stay with the doctors and recover well to see if he can arrive against Arsenal.

“If he is not fit, we will wait until the next game against Spurs (on February 5). He cannot train well, he is a little bit uncomfortable, so we decided to give him a few days off.”
