Man City defender Nathan Ake a major doubt for Arsenal clash after being forced off against Bayern Munich

Man City defender Nathan Ake a major doubt for Arsenal clash after being forced off against Bayern Munich

This could have huge ramifications.

Nathan Ake is a doubt for Manchester City's Premier League clash against Arsenal after suffering a suspected hamstring injury against Bayern Munich.

Pep Guardiola's side drew 1-1 in Munich on Wednesday night to secure a 4-1 aggregate win over the Bundesliga club in their Champions League quarter-final.

The second leg at the Allianz was by no means a comfortable affair, with the referee showing a total of 10 yellow cards.

While Thomas Tuchel was sent to the stands as tempers reached boiling point in the dugout.

Erling Haaland made up for his penalty miss in the first half, latching on to Kevin De Bruyne's pass and slamming the ball into the corner.

Joshua Kimmich then drew Bayern level from the penalty spot, but there was not enough time to mount a comeback as City march on to the semi-finals where they will face Real Madrid.

However, on a joyous night for the reigning Premier League champions, the sight of Ake limping off the field will cast a dark shadow over the evening's events.

Man City suffer Ake injury blow

Ake pulled up in the 67th minute against Bayern Munich clutching his hamstring, before signalling to the bench that he needed to come off.

The 28-year-old was promptly replaced by Aymeric Laporte, with City fans praying it is not too serious.

The Netherlands international has been crucial for Pep Guardiola this season, excelling in his new role at left-back.

However, he could now miss his side's potentially title deciding clash against the Gunners next Wednesday.

Four points separate league leaders Arsenal and Manchester City in the Premier League table, although City have a game in hand over Mikel Arteta's side.

It is likely that the title could be decided when the pair face off at the Etihad next week, and Ake's potential absence would come as a major blow.
