How long are Rodri and Jack Grealish suspended for? Man City duo set for spell on sidelines

Rodri and Jack Grealish are set for spells on the sidelines after their frustrations got the better of them during Manchester City’s 3-3 draw with Tottenham.

The Citizens duo received a yellow card each during the clash with Spurs, and they’ve now reached a certain number of bookings, meaning they will be sitting on the sidelines.

A frustrating Sunday for Pep Guardiola, and he’ll be without two key players in Rodri and Grealish for their next outingAFP

It’s not an ideal situation for Pep Guardiola as his side look to end their three-game winless streak in the league.

How long will Rodri and Jack Grealish be suspended for?

Both players have now accumulated five yellow cards this season before gameweek 19, meaning they face a one-match Premier League ban.

This means that Grealish won’t feature against his old club Aston Villa while Guardiola will have to find a way to replace Rodri.

The next set of top-flight fixtures are set to take place in midweek, but the duo will be back for City’s trip to Kenilworth Road to play Luton Town next weekend.

However, that game against Villa on Wednesday night could become a problem due to the fact Jeremy Doku limped off early in the second half against Tottenham.

The manner of the yellow cards also won’t please their manager as both were avoidable.

Rodri’s was a silly foul in the first half, and Grealish’s came when he kicked the ball away.

Without these two, that game against Villa will be significantly harder.

Villa already boast an impressive home record this season with ten wins out of 11 in all competitions at Villa Park, so the double suspension is the last thing Guardiola needed.
