Pep Guardiola has this afternoon confirmed that both David Silva and John Stones have returned to full fitness, ahead of his side’s meeting with Everton.
City host Everton
The Citizens are set to return to action tomorrow night, in a Premier League meeting with Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees.
City will head into proceedings on the back of a bounce-back result last time out.
After being downed by Wolves in spectacular fashion last week, the Sky Blues bounced back with a comfortable 2-0 win over Sheffield United on Sunday.
Goals from Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne eventually secured all 3 points for the hosts at the Etihad.
Everton, though, will prove no pushovers in 24 hours’ time.
The Merseysiders have picked up successive Premier League victories since Carlo Ancelotti’s appointment, first at home to Burnley, and then at Newcastle this past weekend.
City’s double boost
Man City will nevertheless no doubt head into proceedings confident of securing all 3 points, though, with the prospects of the English champions tomorrow evening having today been dealt a boost.
Speaking in a press conference a short time ago, Pep Guardiola was asked for a fitness update on his squad.
And, after confirming that long-term injury absentee Aymeric Laporte is inching towards a return to the pitch, the Citizens boss also went on to reveal that both David Silva and John Stones are in contention to feature versus Everton:
PEP 💬 I like to have all the squad available – I dont like to see players injured.
Yes, John Stones and @21LVA are back.
