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

Sports Mole rounds up all of Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League fixture against Everton.

Manchester City return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon when they take on Everton at the Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola's side went into the November international break having posted a 2-0 victory over rivals and neighbours Manchester United.

The result left City three points adrift of leaders Chelsea, and Guardiola will expect his players to take advantage of an extra day of preparation at the weekend.

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