City manager Pep Guardiola says he has just 13 fit players for the Leicester game at the weekend.
Gundogan is likely to miss three matches for City while he self-isolates, including Monday's league clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Thursday's League Cup tie against Bournemouth and Sunday's league game against Leicester City. All of them were really good, ' Guardiola said following the victory at the Etihad.
Gabriel Jesus is the latest Manchester City star struck down by injury, leaving teenager Liam Delap their only recognised striker. "We need the academy, not just for the training sessions". Now he has to be calm and keep working.
"So overall I was very pleased, disappointed obviously to go out of the competition because we wanted to progress but ultimately I'm very pleased with the performance".
The situation that we have right now is we have just 13 players available in the first team.
On the young prospect, Guardiola said: "With the problems we have up front (Sergio Aguero is out for at least two months), he will stay with us".
"We knew when we saw the schedule, when we started, that it is tough, but we always go", he said.
'We can not forget, like with Phil, he is only 17 years-old. "He has a lot of things to improve, steps need their own time".
"I felt we were a threat all night", Tindall added, speaking to his club's website.
'We've had Phil, Eric, Liam and we have Cole Palmer, who will be an exceptional player.
"That's why we have the academy and we trust them".
"When you start a new season there are new aspirations, you want to win the most as possible and we want to win everything". It depends on the quality of the player.
Tommy Doyle impressed in a handful of cup appearances last term, and he was named in midfield alongside Foden, with Riyad Mahrez given the nod out wide.
City finished last season with a whimper as they ended 18 points behind Premier League champions Liverpool and suffered a shock Champions League quarter-final defeat against Lyon.
