Ilkay Gundogan has calmed injury fears after the Man City midfielder was unable to take a penalty kick following extra-time in the Carabao Cup.
Pep Guardiola made a raft of changes against Wolves on Tuesday night with Gundogan being 1 of nine players brought into the line-up from the win over Burnley. But what promised to be an exciting cup tie, turned into a damp squib, as the two sides were inseparable following 120 minutes of dour football. City won the subsequent shootout, but Gundogan was unable to step up due to a muscular issue: "Unfortunately, Gundo finished with some problems," said Pep. "I don't know if it is serious, we will see on Wednesday. We hope it is not dangerous and we need all the squad." Thankfully, further tests cleared Gundogan of any serious injury. "It doesn’t look that bad. I don’t think I’ve pulled something. The last ten minutes, my legs were cramping everywhere, especially in the groin." Oct 26 - 5:23 AM
