Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has reported injuries to four players ahead of the Premier League clash against Everton on Wednesday night.
The Cityzens recently won their 16th straight game in all competitions and are now seven points clear at the top of the table.
They are scheduled to play their game against the Toffees tomorrow and Guardiola has posted an update on four stars from the first team.
Ruben Dias has not appeared in the previous two games as he was recovering from illness, but Guardiola confirmed that he is in contention to face the Toffees.
Meanwhile, Guardiola said that Sergio Agüero will be available at the bank while he is recovering his physical form after recovering from the coronavirus.
“Yes [he’s (Dias) fine and in contention], ” said at the pre-match press conference cited by MEN.
“Sergio has been injured for a year, so he can’t start from the beginning but he’s ready to go back, he was on the bench the last game and he’ll be there again. When he can return, he will. ”
However, Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin de Bruyne are not available for the game. Gundogan suffered a minor groin injury in the 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur.
Guardiola stated that the game will come too soon for Gundogan, while De Bruyne is on the mend and is back in training after a hamstring injury.
“Gundo is much better, but tomorrow could be too soon.” added. “Getting better, really getting better [on De Bruyne]. Today he did all the training with the group. It’s better.
The Cityzens have won each of the previous five league games against the Toffees and should be willing to extend their record winning streak.
A win will see them 10 points clear of Manchester United and Leicester City at the top of the standings and put them in the driver’s seat for the title.
