Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero will both be back from injury in time to face Arsenal on Sunday, after they returned to the bench this week.

Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero have both been out of action for Manchester City lately. De Bruyne hasn’t started a game since his hamstring injury in mid-January, whilst Aguero hasn’t played a minute since January 3rd.

Yet both were in the squad to face Everton on Wednesday, meaning they’re also available for Arsenal on Sunday. We covered De Bruyne’s return to training earlier this week, but he proved in Wednesday’s sub appearance he’s also ready to take to the pitch.

In Aguero’s case, this is the third time this season he’s made his comeback just in time for a match against Arsenal. He overcame his knee injury ahead of October’s Etihad clash, then recovered from another problem just a week before the EFL Cup quarter-final.

Now, he’s returned to the squad just in time for the Premier League trip to the Emirates Stadium. There must be something about Arsenal.

Whether either or both will start remains to be seen. City are on an excellent winning run with and without the two players, so it’s going to be a huge ask to get a result either way.
