Manchester City have been handed a boost ahead of Saturday’s encounter against Watford with centre-back Aymeric Laporte back training.
The Frenchman was forced to withdraw midway through City’s Carabao Cup final victory over Chelsea after picking up a hamstring injury in the first-half at Wembley.
Having made a return to first-team training, manager Pep Guardiola will have to make a decision whether Laporte is ready for the arrival of the Hornets at the Etihad Stadium this weekend.
