De Bruyne & Foden out of Community Shield
Ahead of the game, Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Man City will be without two of their top midfielders.
Phil Foden missed the Euro 2020 final with England with an injury and it is, according to Pep, keeping him out for a while longer.
Kevin De Bruyne is also sidelined but the City boss expects him to come back quicker than Foden:
“Phil will be still out for a while, he had a tough injury for [England]. We have to be careful, it could be longer [if he comes back too soon]. And Kevin is still out as well. I think he’ll come back a little quicker.”
