Blow for Guardiola as two key Man City players banned for Aston Villa clash


Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola will be without two key players when they travel to Aston Villa in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Jack Grealish and Rodri picked up their fifth yellow cards of the campaign as they were held to a 3-3 draw by Tottenham on Sunday.

Rodri, who has already served a three-match suspension this season, was booked for a cynical foul on Pedro Porro. Grealish saw yellow for kicking the ball away and will not face his former club.

This means they will serve the mandatory one-game ban at Villa Park. The suspensions will come as a blow to Guardiola’s side given Villa’s home form so far this season.
