Many Manchester City fans were hoping to see the hugely exciting Spanish youngster Brahim Díaz feature in tomorrow’s Carabao Cup fourth round tie against Wolves at the Etihad Stadium.
Unfortunately in a stroke of bad luck for the 18-year-old from Málaga, he suffered a knee injury in City EDS’ 4-1 win over Derby U23s at the weekend, having to come off at half-time after assisting the first goal of the game, scored by Benjamín Garré.
According to Sammy Lee of Goal, the knee injury Brahim picked up will keep him out of action for three weeks, meaning he has no chance of playing tomorrow.

With fellow wonderkid Phil Foden away at the FIFA U-17 World Cup with England, there will be less participation than we might have expected from City’s youngsters.
There could be chances for local boy Tosin Adarabioyo, 20, and Ukraine international Oleksandr Zinchenko, 20, who Pep Guardiola suggested will be tested at left-back against Wolves.
