UK Jesus, Laporte, Mendy - Man City injury list and expected return dates last minute news
MetiNews.Com - The latest injury news from Manchester City and possible return dates following the Premier League win over Arsenal.
Breaking News ! Manchester City welcomed Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling back from injury in the Premier League win over Arsenal, but suffered another injury blow with two more players picking up problems. As well as Aguero and Sterling, Joao Cancelo also made his first club appearance of the season, while Bernardo Silva was back after struggling for fitness before the international break. Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus were missing, as expected, for City, while Aleks Zinchenko remains out. And just as the injury list was clearing up, City lost Aymeric Laporte and Benjamin Mendy against Arsenal. With games coming thick and fast for City, continuing with the Champions League opener against Porto this week, Pep Guardiola will be hoping for his unavailable players to recover as quickly as possible - but without rushing back and risking a longer lay-off.
