Manchester City may have been handed a major injury boost on Tuesday morning ahead of their clashes against Atalanta and Liverpool this week, with midfielder Rodri spotted at training – although the Spaniard did not partake in the full session.
Rodri has missed the last three games with a hamstring problem, however it now appears as though the midfielder is set to make a return to Pep Guardiola’s side in the coming games. The midfielder did not take part in the full session, however did briefly appear for what was described as a ‘kick about‘ and a brief ‘stretch‘.
Manchester City are currently without four players, on the basis that Rodri is on the verge of full fitness, leaving Pep Guardiola with slight selection dilemmas at the San Siro and Anfield – David Silva was the latest player to be ruled out through injury, and missed training on Tuesday morning.
Silva joins Oleksandr Zinchenko, Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane on the sidelines for the upcoming two games at least. Tommy Doyle, who made his mark in the previous round of the Carabao Cup against Southampton, also trained with the squad this morning.
