:Headline: Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Watford:
Sports Mole looks at the latest injury and suspension news for Manchester City ahead of Saturday's Premier League fixture with Watford.
By , Senior Reporter | 3mo

Manchester City play host to Watford on Saturday evening with the opportunity to extend their advantage at the top of the Premier League table to four points.

Pep Guardiola's side have benefited from Liverpool registering several draws over the past five weeks, and City are scheduled to play before the Merseyside giants this weekend.

However, Guardiola has been forced to rotate his players over the past two games due to a number of fitness issues being sustained over a hectic period of matches.

Here, Sports Mole looks at Man City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their encounter with the Hornets.



MANCHESTER CITY'S INJURY LIST

Aymeric Laporte

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Muscular
Possible return date: March 9

Aymeric Laporte was substituted at half time of the EFL Cup final, and Guardiola initially said that the Frenchman will remain sidelined until after the international break. However, it has now been claimed that the defender has an 'outside chance' of featuring on Saturday.




Fernandinho



Status: Out
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: March 30

Fernandinho sustained a muscular injury ahead of extra time in the EFL Cup final, and Guardiola does not expect to have the Brazilian available until the end of March.

Kevin De Bruyne sustained a hamstring injury against Bournemouth at the weekend, and Guardiola has suggested that the Belgian may be sidelined for a few games. However, the playmaker has insisted that the problem is 'not too bad'.
