John Stones, David Silva and Sergio Aguero are all yet to return to training after injury setbacks, as of Tuesday morning.
Sergio Aguero suffered a muscle injury last month during a match against Chelsea, and he’s yet to return to the team – missing matches against Newcastle, Burnley and Manchester United.
Meanwhile, John Stones had to come off before the hour mark after an injury against United at the weekend. David Silva completed the 90 minutes, but he ended the game carrying a knock.
The trio all missed training with Manchester City on Tuesday, ahead of their game against Dinamo Zagreb. More relevantly, they face Arsenal this Sunday.
Most thought the game was a write-off for the Gunners a week or two ago, and many still hold that opinion. There are small signs it might be a little more competitive now though.
Arsenal finally have a win under their belts, whilst City are on a bad run of form by their standards. They’ve only won one of their last four games (against Burnley). Manchester United beat them 2-1 at home and they drew with Newcastle and Shakhtar Donetsk.
Freddie Ljungberg’s side still need all the help they can get. Seeing the likes of Aguero, Stones and Silva miss out on the starting lineup could give them another boost. We’ll keep you updated if there’s any further news later in the week.
