Manchester City are sweating over the fitness of defender John Stones ahead of Saturday’s visit of Everton at the Etihad Stadium.
City were in action on Wednesday when they hosted Hoffenheim in the Champions League, coming from behind to beat the Bundesliga side 2-1 and secure top spot in Group F after two goals from Leroy Sane.

They will now look to carry that momentum into Saturday’s lunchtime game against Everton, in which victory could take them back to the top of the Premier League ahead of Liverpool’s next outing on Sunday.
Manager Pep Guardiola’s biggest concern could be the injury to defender Stones after he was withdrawn at half-time against Hoffenheim due to a knee problem.
Meanwhile, Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Danilo and Fernandinho will be assessed in the hope they could return, but David Silva and Benjamin Mendy are out of the encounter with the Toffees.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
