Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker was substituted at halftime during the Citizens’ 1-0 FA Cup semi-final win against Brighton on Saturday.
It was confirmed after the game that the 28-year-old had suffered a hamstring injury and he is now a major doubt for tomorrow’s match against Tottenham.
Fans on Twitter are concerned by the number of injuries that City’s squad has sustained in recent weeks:

City currently have five players on the sidelines but at least one should be fit to face Spurs. Sergio Aguero missed the victory against Cardiff with a muscular injury and was rested for the Brighton win.
The Argentinian international has returned to training so should be in the squad for the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final at Tottenham’s new stadium.
Oleksandr Zinchenko (hamstring), Fabian Delph (knock) and Claudio Bravo (Achilles) are all out of contention, along with Walker, for the crucial European tie tomorrow.
