Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says Eric Garcia was taken to the hospital for tests after a heavy collision with teammate Ederson Moraes during the 3-0 win over Arsenal in the Premier League.

Guardiola said the young Spanish defender was conscious but that City was a “little bit concerned.”

“He responded quite well, but we have to wait,” Guardiola said.
