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

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Champions League showdown with Olympiacos on Wednesday evening.

Manchester City will endeavour to maintain their perfect start in the Champions League when they make the long journey to Piraeus to take on Greek giants Olympiacos on Wednesday evening.

The Citizens are three for three having already beaten Olympiacos 3-0 earlier in November, and Pep Guardiola has also witnessed his crop cruise to victory over Marseille and Porto to assume control of Group C.

However, City tasted disappointment in the Premier League at the weekend as they fell to a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, with Son Heung-min and Giovani Lo Celso hitting the back of the net as Guardiola's mixed domestic fortunes continued.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's clash with Olympiacos.

Nathan Ake

Status: Out
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: Unknown

Nathan Ake's injury woes were exacerbated during the international break as he limped off six minutes into the Netherlands' game with Spain. The hamstring problem kept the defender out of the loss to Spurs and Ake will not be ready to take to the field against Olympiacos.

Type of injury: Stomach
Possible return date: Unknown

Fernandinho is in a similar situation to Ake, as he had recovered from an initial injury before being ruled out of the weekend's clash with Spurs due to gastroenteritis. The Brazilian is not expected to play a part in the Champions League either.

Benjamin Mendy

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: November 25 (vs. Olympiacos)

Benjamin Mendy recently revealed that he is back in training and working his way towards full fitness after a leg injury. The left-back was not risked for the trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but he has a chance of returning to action against Olympiacos.


Man City have no suspension concerns for their showdown with Olympiacos.
