Rodri to miss Arsenal clash as Manchester City accept the midfielder’s three-game ban 

As Manchester City decided NOT to file an appeal after the midfielder received a red card in Nottingham Forest’s victory, Rodri will miss the match against Arsenal.

 

Rodri was dismissed in City’s victory after a collision with Forest’s Morgan Gibbs-White.

He will miss the crucial Arsenal match and serve a three-game suspension.

 

Rodri’s three-match suspension for violent behavior, which means he will miss Manchester City’s crucial match against Arsenal in two weeks, will not be challenged by the Premier League champions.

 

For touching Morgan Gibbs-White’s throat during Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest, Rodri received a red card.

His suspension will start on Wednesday when City takes on Newcastle in the Carabao Cup.

 

The club has adopted the same position as manager Pep Guardiola, who opposed the 27-year-old’s appeal and said that he needed to “learn his lesson.”.

 

The Spaniard will also be sidelined for Saturday’s trip to Wolves, so Kalvin Phillips will have to make do with a rare start at Molineux.

Because some of his stars are allegedly already “exhausted” from the schedule, Guardiola is resting them against Newcastle, including Kyle Walker and Ruben Dias.

 

Bernardo Silva and Mateo Kovacic were two of the injured players who missed the weekend for City.

Guardiola will decide whether Kovacic is fit to play in the third-round match on Tyneside after the Croatian has since trained.

 

Manchester City decided against appealing Rodri’s three-game suspension, so he will miss the match against Arsenal.

During City’s victory over Nottingham Forest, the Spaniard was dismissed for a scuffle with Morgan Gibbs-White.

In preparation for this week’s Carabao Cup match between City and Newcastle, Guardiola plans to rest a number of important players.

Guardiola said of Rodri after the dismissal: “Rodri has to control himself and his emotions.

 

He must perform this.

Rodri cannot receive a yellow card, whereas I can.

I don’t participate in games. The men inside must exercise caution.

Rodri has a lot to learn.’ .
