Manchester City’s previous game against Everton was called off as several of Pep Guardiola’s players and staff tested positive to coronavirus.

City boss Pep Guardiola has now admitted that he has a very weakened side to play Chelsea on Friday.

Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus are two of the stars to have contracted the virus, while goalkeeper Ederson is self-isolating.

Speaking ahead of the game, Man City boss Pep Guardiola has now admitted that a good number of his squad will be unavailable for the clash, revealing that five of his players are currently self-isolating.

Guardiola said: “Five players are out right now – isolated for 10 days.

“Some are the first cases – two players and two staff and then three more the second time.

“I think the Premier League will not allow us to say it but you will see who does not travel and you will know exactly who they are.

“You will see the line-ups and three important players not there so you will know exactly but I’m not allowed to tell you.”
