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

By , Editor | 2mo
Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Manchester City ahead of Sunday's EFL Cup final against Chelsea at Wembley.

The first trophy of the season is up for grabs on Sunday when Manchester City and Chelsea face off in the EFL Cup final at Wembley.

Man City are bidding to retain a trophy for the first time in the club's history and take on an out-of-form Chelsea side that they have already beaten twice this season - including a 6-0 hammering in the Premier League earlier this month.

Pep Guardiola's side will therefore be favourites to lift the trophy again, although they may need to produce a better performance than the one which saw them scrape past Schalke 04 in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Premier League leaders were at least able to welcome Vincent Kompany back from injury as a second-half sub in that match, and here Sports Mole rounds up the latest list of possible absentees for Sunday's final.



MAN CITY'S INJURY LIST



Fabian Delph

Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Illness
Possible return date: February 24

Fabian Delph has come down with an illness which puts his participation in Sunday's match at risk, with the midfielder set to be assessed before the team is chosen.



Gabriel Jesus



Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: February 24

Jesus was unavailable for the Champions League game in midweek and, while Guardiola has suggested that his hamstring problem is not too serious, the Brazilian will require a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's match.



John Stones



Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Groin
Possible return date: February 24

Stones is in a similar boat to Jesus in that his injury has been described as nothing serious, but it was enough to sideline him on Wednesday and he remains a doubt for Wembley.



Benjamin Mendy



Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: February 24

Mendy's fitness is a source of ongoing concern for City, with the left-back having reacted badly to his brief return against Burton Albion last month. The Frenchman has missed all seven games since then and is once again a major doubt for this weekend.



Claudio Bravo



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

Claudio Bravo is back with Man City to continue his rehabilitation now, but no date has been set for his return.



MAN CITY'S SUSPENSION LIST



Man City have no players suspended for this match.
