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

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

Manchester City will hope to return to winning ways in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon when they take on Burnley in their first game back since the international break.

Pep Guardiola's side rescued a point in a thrilling 2-2 draw with Liverpool before the break, with Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne netting while Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah struck for the hosts.

The reigning champions now find themselves third in the rankings after seven matches, but Guardiola is set to be one of many coaches impacted by the unforgiving schedule.

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

City have confirmed that Ferran Torres suffered a small foot fracture while representing Spain during the international break, and the attacker will spend some time on the sidelines.

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Other
Possible return date: October 16 (vs. Burnley)

Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson will not return from international duty until the day before the Burnley clash at the earliest, and the shot-stopper is therefore highly unlikely to be ready for domestic action.

Gabriel Jesus
