Guardiola provides Man City injury update ahead of Watford game

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has provided an injury update on his squad ahead of their fixture with Watford this weekend.

City host Javi Gracia’s side in Saturday’s evening kick off at The Etihad, and Guardiola has revealed defender Aymeric Laporte is an outside chance to return to the squad having trained this week following a hamstring injury picked up in last month’s Carabao Cup final.

Fernandinho, who also picked up an injury in the cup final win over Chelsea, remains out with a muscle injury whilst Fabian Delph, Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones remain out.

Claudio Bravo also remains a long-term absentee.

“All of them, they are getting better,” Guardiola said at his pre-match press conference.

“Aymeric is back, he trained the last two or three days, but I don’t know about tomorrow.

“Fernandinho is out.

“Kevin, right now, is not fit, John Stones is not fit either – but the other ones are okay.”
