Pep Guardiola "does not know" if Raheem Sterling will recover from a muscular injury in time to face Arsenal in Sunday's EFL Cup final.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed that Raheem Sterling is facing a battle to be fit in time for Sunday's EFL Cup final meeting with Arsenal.

The 23-year-old, who has emerged as a possible transfer target for Real Madrid, picked up a "muscular problem" in the 4-0 win against Basel 10 days ago.

Sterling was not involved for City's shock FA Cup fifth-round defeat at Wigan Athletic last time out, and Guardiola is unsure whether the English forward - boasting 20 goals in all competitions this term - will feature at Wembley Stadium.

"He has a muscular problem," Guardiola said at his pre-match presser when asked for an update on Sterling's fitness. "He had it against Basel. I don't know if he will be ready for Sunday."

Fellow attacker Gabriel Jesus is also expected to miss out, having only managed to get a few training sessions under his belt since damaging his knee against Crystal Palace on New Year's Eve.
