Bernardo Silva joins the likes of Kevin De Bruney, Jack Grealish, John Stones, and others on Manchester City’s injured list

Manchester City have started the season brilliantly, winning all of their games so far. They are top of the Premier League, winning five games in dominant fashion. Yesterday, they also began their Champions League defense when they won 3-1 against FK Crvena Zvezda.

Crvena Zvezda managed to scare the UEFA Champions League champions when they scored a goal in the first half. The lead was only temporary, as City turned it up in the second half, with Julian Alvarez scoring a brace and Rodri scoring a fine finish. However, despite the great win, City have suffered a setback in the form of an injury.

Update on Bernardo Silva’s injury

Bernardo Silva had signed a contract extension this summer, which will see him stay until 2026. The Portuguese midfielder had also started the match yesterday, but calamity struck him. He was substituted right before halftime for new signing Jeremy Doku, who had a very good game.

At the time, it was thought that Silva had only picked up a knock, but after tests were conducted, the injury was revealed to be more serious. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola revealed that Silva will indeed miss some of the next matches.

“He didn’t say anything at the end. I didn’t speak with the doctors, but apparently for the next games he won’t be able to play.”

It is currently not known what the full extent of the injury is or when Bernardo could potentially return to action.

List of Manchester City stars injured right now

Silva’s injury comes at a bad time when the club is already facing an injury crisis. Already, City have lost star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who suffered a hamstring injury in their first league game against Burnley.

City also lost English defender John Stones, who has been out of action since the Community Shield loss to Arsenal. Both Jack Grealish and new signing Mateo Kovacic have also been out of action for a while.

Pep spoke about the injuries, saying how it will be very difficult for them, “When we have five important players – really, really important players – injured, to sustain that for a long time will be difficult. But it is what it is.”

“We cannot have the salaries and budgets for transfers to have 55 players. It would be chaos for the clubs and they would be bankrupt. Sometimes it happens.”

While Pep may claim to have an injury ridden squad, Manchester City have very good squad depth compared to other teams. With the team already in good form despite missing all these crucial players, it seems City won’t be in too much of a hassle.
