Manchester City will be without three players for Tottenham clash, though Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling could feature.
Citizens are set to face their Premier League rivals on Sunday following the international break.
Ahead of the match, Pep Guardiola has provided an injury update.
“Fernandinho is not fit, he has something in his stomach,” the manager said.
“Sergio training this week and Raheem today was the first training with the team.”
Nathan Ake and Benjamin Mendy are also not expected to be available at the weekend, while Aleks Zinchenko could be forced to miss the match after his Ukraine squad were put into isolation following three positive Covid tests in their squad.
Asked whether City and Spurs are both in better conditions than their last meeting, Guardiola answered:
“We are getting better, I don’t speak about Tottenham as they are not my concern.
“We recovered players, at the beginning we struggled with lack of conditions but now we except for Fernandinho and Nathan and one other, the rest are coming back. We’ve a lot of games until March and it will be important to have everyone fit.”
