Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers

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

Manchester City return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon when they play host to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Having watched Chelsea slip up at West Ham United, City moved to the top of the standings with a 3-1 victory away at Watford last weekend.

However, Pep Guardiola watched his side succumb to defeat at RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Tuesday night, an occasion which saw two players needed to be withdrawn through injury.

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


Ferran Torres

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

Torres will be sidelined until 2022 as he battles his way back from a foot fracture, but the Spaniard is being heavily linked with a January move to Barcelona anyway.


Phil Foden

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: December 11 (vs. Wolves)

After withdrawing Foden against Leipzig, Guardiola said that Foden had been "struggling a bit" with his ankle. While the substitution was described as a precaution, the playmaker is a doubt for the weekend.


Nathan Ake

Type of injury: Back
Possible return date: December 11 (vs. Wolves)

Ake was also taken off during the game in midweek, Guardiola citing a back injury as the reason. Although the Dutchman could feature among the replacements, he will not start this game.
