Phillips has been suffering from a shoulder injury and he will now undergo surgery. And due to the injury, the midfielder has been left out of England’s squad for the September games in Nations League.

“I don’t know [how long he will be out for], I am not a doctor but in a good way he can arrive of course the World Cup,” said Guardiola.

“I think so but I am not a doctor. The doctor says the only solution right now is to do what we have to do.”

“Absolutely [it’s been frustrating] – for us as well. We need him because Rodri cannot play all the games, Kalvin came to fight for that position and sometimes you need two holding midfielders to be more defensive,” Guardiola added.

“But I think it will be a bit longer because I think he needs it [surgery]. Every time he’s out because of this and the doctors say if it’s three or four times out then the only solution is to have surgery.”
