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

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's FA clash with Fulham.

Manchester City will be looking to book their spot in the fifth round of the FA Cup when they welcome Championship side Fulham to the Etihad Stadium this weekend.

Pep Guardiola's side will enter the match off the back of a 1-0 win over Sheffield United in the Premier League on Tuesday night, where Aymeric Laporte made his return from a knee problem.

City now face back-to-back cup fixtures as they will follow Sunday's clash with the second leg of their EFL Cup semi-final against rivals Manchester United on January 29.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the FA Cup fixture at the Etihad Stadium.

Leroy Sane, who continues to be linked with a move to Bayern Munich, has been on the sidelines since injuring knee ligaments against Liverpool in the Community Shield back in August. The Germany international is making good progress, though, and could return to action at some point in February.

John Stones missed out against Sheffield United on Tuesday night after picking up a slight injury against Crystal Palace at the weekend. However, the centre-back could return for this weekend's clash.
