Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling is expected to return to action for the clubs Champions League Round of 16 first leg against Real Madrid, according to Rob Dawson of ESPN.
This update follows Martin Blackburns earlier report that the Englishman is set to miss two to three weeks with a hamstring injury picked up in City’s 2-0 away defeat to Spurs.
Sterling hasn’t scored in City’s last eight games in all competitions and is struggling to pick up form. Coupling that with the recent good form of Riyad Mahrez; the winger is seemingly falling down the pecking order.
City are reportedly hopeful Sterling will be fit for the first leg away in Madrid, with the forward already scoring five goals in six Champions League games.
