Latest Man City Injury News And Expected Return Dates: Updates On John Stones, Nathan Ake And 2 Other Players

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed that John Stones will be available to play in upcoming games despite not featuring against Arsenal at the weekend.

The defender was an unused substitute during the 0-0 draw versus the Gunners but, when asked about the defender’s fitness in a pre-match press conference on Tuesday afternoon, Guardiola said:

“He [John] has to feel fully fit. But the injury was less than we expected. We’ll see. For today or maybe for the next games, he’ll be ready.”

Although there is still some doubt that he will feature against Aston Villa, it seems he should be ready to play in subsequent fixtures.

Expected Return Date – Saturday 6th April v Crystal Palace
