City dealt fresh injury blow for Barca game.
Manchester City have been dealt the blow of losing in-form midfielder James Milner to injury for their Champions League game against Barcelona next week, according to ESPN.
The England international is out with a knee problem, which also rules him out of this weekend’s Premier League game against Newcastle United.
It has been a difficult season for City in terms of losing key players, with Sergio Aguero spending a lengthy time out injured, while Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony were away for a long time due to their commitments in the African Cup of Nations.
Milner has been one of Manuel Pellegrini’s best players in recent matches, and will be a disappointing absence from this huge game on Tuesday.
