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

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with rivals Manchester United.

Manchester City take on rivals Manchester United this weekend in the pick of the Premier League fixtures.

The Citizens head into Saturday's game on the back of successive top-flight wins without conceding, but they are a point behind their neighbours in the table.

Pep Guardiola had the luxury of being able to rotate his side for the Champions League dead rubber with Marseille on Wednesday, though he still has some injury issues to contend with.

Sergio Aguero made his comeback in that game and is available to face United, but Guardiola has already confirmed that the striker will not start.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the trip to Old Trafford.

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: December 12 (vs. Man Utd)

Gundogan started the game with Marseille but was taken off at half time with what Guardiola later revealed was an ankle problem. The Catalan said the decision to replace the midfielder was a precautionary measure.

Type of injury: Muscle injury
Possible return date: December 12 (vs. Man Utd)

Young centre-back Garcia was also taken off against Marseille and his injury issue looks to be a little more serious than Gundogan's. The former Barcelona man now seems certain to be left out of the squad for this meeting with United, though that has not yet been confirmed by Guardiola.


City have no players suspended for this Manchester derby showdown.
