Aymeric Laporte’s imposed long-term lay-off, combined with Rodri’s injury and the contradictions of John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi, has opened the door for Eric Garcia.
And the 18-year-old Spaniard, who joined City from Barcelona two years ago, is doing all he can to earn a first Premier League start from boss Pep Guardiola.
Eric Garcia only previous Premier League involvement was as a 67th-minute represent for Otamendi in City’s 8-0 collapse of Watford last month when the champions were already 7-0 up. But asked if he now felt ready to start a Premier League game, Eric Garcia said: With these games, it helps to be ready if someday I have the opportunity to play.
So, I keep working and wait for my opening to prove I can also play. I’m really happy for the chance to play in the Carabao Cup. With the assurance the staff and the players give to me, on the pitch, it’s very easy. Pep Guardiola says just to play as I do always and be confident, be calm and speak with all the players because they will help me and I need to help them as well.
I have more interaction with the defenders because we play in the same position and we try to help each other. We’re a team. We’re all friends because it’s the key, when you’re going to play hard-hitting games in the Champions League and in the Premier League, to all be together.
