Manchester City have been handed an injury blow as four players- Benjamin Mendy (muscle injury), Aymeric Laporte (muscle injury), Kevin De Bruyne (fitness) and Gabriel Jesus (thigh injury)- will miss Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Porto.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Mendy is expected to be out of action until after the November international break. The £25.2m-rated left-back has a muscle injury that kept him out of our 1-0 win over Arsenal on Saturday.
Laporte has only made two appearances in all competitions this season. The £54m-rated defender tested positive for Covid-19 at the start of the campaign and he missed our win over Arsenal due to a muscle injury. He’s expected back in just over a week.
De Bruyne picked up an injury during the international break, but he’s believed to only be short of fitness. The £54m-rated midfielder could therefore return before the month comes to a close.
Jesus suffered a thigh injury in our 3-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on September 21 and has been out of action ever since. The £54m forward could be back in a month.
