Pep Guardiola has confirmed in his pre-match press conference ahead of Manchester City’s trip to Bramall Lane on Tuesday night, that both John Stones and Benjamin Mendy are doubts for the clash.
Manchester City have been hampered by injury problems all season, and the issues look to have continued in the defensive department, with Pep Guardiola revealing two problems sustained in the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.
According to Guardiola, John Stones has a ‘problem in his leg‘, while Benjamin Mendy is suffering from ‘muscular fatigue‘ following his recent run in the team. The former is set to be assessed by the club doctor on Monday afternoon, with an update on his fitness set to be provided to Guardiola.
As for Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte, both players are set to miss out on the clash with Chris Wilder’s men on Tuesday night – the former is yet to begin training on grass following his cruciate ligament injury sustained in August.
