Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Arsenal

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday night's EFL Cup quarter-final with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Manchester City switch their attention back to claiming a fourth successive EFL Cup triumph on Tuesday when they take on struggling Arsenal in the quarter-final at the Emirates Stadium.

Pep Guardiola's side have lifted the trophy in each of the past three seasons - and five times in the last seven years - and could take another stride towards Wembley with victory in North London.

Man City go into the match off the back of a 1-0 win at Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday, and face an Arsenal side in dreadful form under Guardiola's former protege Mikel Arteta.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Man City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.



Gabriel Jesus

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Teeth
Possible return date: December 22 (vs. Arsenal)

Gabriel Jesus was missing from the matchday squad against Southampton due to a "condition in his teeth" and remains a doubt for this game given the quick turnaround.



Aymeric Laporte

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Unspecified
Possible return date: Unknown

Aymeric Laporte has fallen out of favour in recent weeks and did not even make the enhanced matchday squad for the trip to Southampton as he battles an unspecified injury problem. The centre-back is again expected to miss this game too.


Eric Garcia

Status: Out
Type of injury: Muscle injury
Possible return date: January 3 (vs. Chelsea)

Guardiola has confirmed that Eric Garcia will be sidelined for up to three weeks with the muscle problem he picked up against Marseille earlier this month, potentially ruling him out until the New Year.

Man City have no players suspended for this EFL Cup quarter-final.
