There was a lot of bad news for Manchester City at the Melbourne Cricket arena as a record crowd watched on as 18 minutes into their tie against Real Madrid, new signing Fabian Delph sustained an injury following a challenge with Luka Modric. Ronaldo, Pepe, Benzema and Cheryshev added to Manchester City’s woes ensuring that Yaya Toure’s strike on the stroke of half time was nothing but a consolation
Manchester City looked way off the pace in the match and never really looked like the expensive side they are. With three weeks to the start of the season, Manchester City can ill-afford an injury right now and would be monitoring Delph’s situation very closely.
