Manchester City will be without their three defenders for the final three games of the season.

Pep Guardiola after the game against Newcastle confirmed that

Kyle Walker,

John Stones, and

Ruben Dias

will miss their last three games of the season.

Guardiola told reporters:

"Ruben, Kyle, and John are out until the end of the season. Muscular problems, we see what happens. We have 13 players and a half, Nathan isn’t in a perfect condition. We have no central defenders. If Phil Foden has to play central defender, he will play CB.”
