Manchester City have a crisis to tend to, and this one has nothing to do with the play on the pitch. Although it could definitely alter their ability to win games if things don’t come out in their favour!
The Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy will see a specialist in London tomorrow over a knee problem sustained during his team’s 1–0 defeat at West Ham United today as an injury crisis added to the pressure on Mark Hughes.
City’s manager faces an anxious wait to discover the seriousness of Bellamy’s problem after the striker came off complaining of discomfort in his knee. Whereas the rest of the squad returned to Manchester, Bellamy remained in the capital for tomorrow’s check-up and looks likely to miss Wednesday’s game against Aston Villa at the very least. So do Robinho, who hurt an ankle, and Micah Richards, who was substituted with a hamstring problem. (The Guardian)
Robinho and Bellamy make up what is essentially City’s strike force. Without either player, the club will have to make do with other options until then. With the club sitting dangerously close to the relegation line, the club will be hoping for good news in the near future.
