Confirmed squad news, expected line-up, latest injury for Premier League game today
The Spain international defender missed the disappointing draw with Everton at the weekend due to a back problem.
This could mean Rico Lewis and Nathan Ake drop out of Pep Guardiola’s starting XI, with Riyad Mahrez and Jack Grealish also at risk of being dropped.
Only Portuguese defender Ruben Dias is expected to miss the trip to Stamford Bridge tonight with a hamstring injury.
City could be boosted by the return of Julian Alvarez, who returned after the World Cup final and a long rest period. The striker is now back in training and offers Guardiola another valuable attacking option alongside goal-scoring machine Erling Haaland.
Elsewhere, Phil Foden and Joao Cancelo could return to the squad, with City set to put pressure on League leaders Arsenal after being held by Newcastle on Tuesday.
Predicted Man City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan; Silva, Haaland, Foden.
