Phil Foden won’t be able to play for Manchester City against Liverpool on Saturday because he had surgery for acute appendicitis. The 22-year-old player left the England team before Sunday’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Ukraine, and City said, “At this point, we don’t know how long he will be out.”

City will play Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday. They want to catch up to Arsenal, which is eight points ahead of them in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola’s team will also play Bayern Munich twice in the Champions League quarterfinals and play Sheffield United at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-finals before the end of April. Foden has played for City 36 times this season in all competitions, scoring 13 goals and setting up six more.
