Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Schalke 04

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Champions League last-16 second leg against Schalke 04.

Manchester City host Schalke 04 on Tuesday night looking to take another step towards a possible quadruple this season.

Leading 3-2 from the first leg of the Champions League tie, Pep Guardiola's side sit firmly in the driving seat but still have some work to do to confirm their place in the quarter-finals.

Saturday's Raheem Sterling-inspired victory over Watford was a ninth win in a row across all competitions for City, and they will be big favourites to bring up double figures in that run at the Etihad Stadium.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for the Premier League champions ahead of the match.
