De Bruyne injury update

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed he is expecting Kevin De Bruyne to return to action in January.

De Bruyne has not played since the opening game of the season, against Burnley, when he went off in the 23rd minute with a serious hamstring problem. In his absence, City have still made a strong start to the season.

And Guardiola is resigned to not having the Belgium international, who played a pivotal role in City’s Treble last season, scoring ten goals and contributing 31, back in his City squad until the new year.

“If he said January, it will be January,” Guardiola said. “I would have loved to have him all season, but now he has had a tough injury and surgery, and he said it would be the end of December or new year, so it will be a happy new year for everyone.”

Liverpool match linked to spike in Covid-19 cases was deemed ‘low risk’

A Liverpool Champions League fixture that is thought to have led to more deaths as a result of the spread of coronavirus in 2020 was classed as “low risk” by officials, the city region’s Mayor has revealed.

On March 11, the World Health Organisation formally declared Covid-19 a pandemic. This was also the same day Liverpool hosted Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

Giving evidence to the UK Covid-19 inquiry, Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram said the government had not expressed any concern about the match going ahead despite fears of the virus spreading.

A joint report by the House of Commons health and science committees strongly criticised ministers for not acting faster as Covid-19 spread. Experts said shutting down a week earlier than March 23, 2020, would have cut the 40,000 death toll in the first wave “by at least half.”

On March 11, more than 3,000 fans travelled to Liverpool from Madrid for the away leg of the European tie, despite lockdowns being in place across Spain. In total, around 50,000 people were recorded as attending the match.

These included Mr Rotheram himself, who told the inquiry he had received no consultation about a possible postponement, given high cases in Spain and a rising number in the UK. He added how there had been “no scientific evidence to support our concerns” and there would likely have been a “sigh of relief” had it not gone ahead.
