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

:Headline: Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leicester City:
Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League showdown with Leicester City.

Manchester City will be looking to make it two wins from two when they host Leicester City in their first home game of the new Premier League season on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's side opened their campaign with an impressive 3-1 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night, before backing that up by beating Bournemouth in the EFL Cup.

A difficult start to the league season continues with Sunday's showdown with Leicester, though, and the Foxes arrive at the Etihad Stadium in fine form themselves.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Man City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest, with Guardiola claiming that he has only 13 fit players at his disposal.



Gabriel Jesus

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

Gabriel Jesus will miss at least three weeks with an injury he sustained against Wolves on Monday - a revelation which came as a surprise after the Brazilian played the full 90 minutes in that game and capped off the scoring late on. Jesus has already been forced to withdraw from the Brazil squad, meaning that he will not be back in action until mid-October at the earliest.



Aymeric Laporte

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Fitness
Possible return date: September 27 (vs. Leicester)

Aymeric Laporte is one of three Man City players to have tested positive for coronavirus and, while he has now recovered from the disease, it did hinder his pre-season preparations and means that he is still working his way back up to fitness after missing City's first two games.



Nicolas Otamendi

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Knock
Possible return date: September 27 (vs. Leicester)

Guardiola's defensive options are likely to be further limited by a potential injury to Nicolas Otamendi, who is struggling with a niggle ahead of this match.



Sergio Aguero

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

Record goalscorer Sergio Aguero is expected to miss up to two months at the beginning of the season as he continues to recover from knee surgery earlier this year.


Ilkay Gundogan

Status: Out
Type of injury: Coronavirus
Possible return date: October 3 (vs. Leeds United)

Ilkay Gundogan's positive COVID-19 test was announced on the morning of the Wolves game on Monday, meaning that he must undergo 10 days of isolation. Such is the packed nature of the fixture schedule that he will miss at least four games in that time and may not be ready to return until after the international break.


Bernardo Silva

Status: Out
Type of injury: Quadriceps
Possible return date: October 17 (vs. Aston Villa)

Bernardo Silva picked up a muscle injury in training ahead of the Wolves match and could be sidelined until after the international break in October as a result.


Joao Cancelo

Status: Out
Type of injury: Foot
Possible return date: October 17 (vs. Aston Villa)

Joao Cancelo is also not expected to be back in action until after the international break as he recovers from a foot injury.


Oleksandr Zinchenko

Status: Out
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: October 17 (vs. Aston Villa)

Like Bernardo, Oleksandr Zinchenko sustained a muscle injury in training ahead of Monday's meeting with Wolves and he too is unlikely to return this side of October's international break.


MANCHESTER CITY'S SUSPENSION LIST

City have no suspension concerns heading into this match.
