Manchester City pair Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane have been pictured in training ahead of Wednesday night’s rescheduled game against Arsenal.
The involvement of Sane is not a surprise considering he has been building up his fitness in recent weeks following a serious knee injury, but the presence of De Bruyne will be a big boost for the Citizens.
The Belgian has missed the last two games due to a back problem and his absence was keenly felt in the 2-0 defeat to Manchester United. Fans on Twitter are delighted to see he could be back to face the Gunners:

Of more importance for City will be whether De Bruyne is fit for the clash against Real Madrid in the Champion League on Tuesday week. After returning to the training pitch, though, it doe seems pretty certain that he’ll be ready to start when the 13-time European champions arrive at the Etihad Stadium.
