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

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Chelsea.

Manchester City will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they head to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon to take on Chelsea.

The Citizens were held to a goalless draw by Southampton in the league last weekend, but they recorded a thumping 6-1 victory over Wycombe Wanderers in the EFL Cup on Tuesday.

Pep Guardiola's side are currently fifth in the table, three points behind leaders Chelsea, who are one of three unbeaten teams in England's top flight this term.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Man City's injury and suspension news ahead of the encounter with Thomas Tuchel's side.

Possible return date: September 25 (vs. Chelsea)

John Stones did not feature against Leipzig, Southampton or Wycombe due to a muscular problem but could potentially be available for the clash with Chelsea this weekend.
