David Silva seems certain to miss tomorrow’s Manchester derby having failed to recover the knock which forced him off at Wembley.

The Spain star was caught during the opening exchanges of Sundays FA Cup semi-final by Arsenal centre-back Gabriel, but despite trying to run the injury off, he was replaced on 23 minutes: "David [is a] real, real doubt - I don’t know if he will be ready to play," Pep Guardiola said. However, it does look like Sergio Aguero will be OK following a return to training while Gabriel Jesus is available after three months out due to a fractured metatarsal, although his "physical condition is not optimal." Fernandinho was confident of recovering earlier this week but there was no mention from Pep. Bacary Sagna could also make a surprise return but John Stones is struggling with an unspecified muscular problem and is likely to be absent again.

Manchester City will be sweating on the fitness of midfielder David Silva ahead of Thursday's showdown with Manchester United.

It's a massive match for both sides as the Sky Blues sit just one point ahead of their rivals in the fourth and final Champions League spot with only six games left in the season. But while Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus for the match, Silva appears to be a major doubt after leaving the club's extra-time loss to Arsenal in the FA Cup semifinals on Sunday in the 23rd minute with an injury after taking a heavy challenge from Gabriel Paulista. Said Guardiola: "David Silva real, real doubt - I don’t know if he will be ready to play after what happened in the first minutes in the semi-final."

A Manchester derby never needs more storylines than the match itself, but the striker situation at Manchester City is an alluring one.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that Gabriel Jesus will return to the squad after missing the last two-and-a-half months with a foot injury, just in time for the derby. Meanwhile, Sergio Aguero has also been cleared of a recent injury sustaining in stoppage time at the weekend, and it looks likely that Aguero will start as Gabriel Jesus still needs to gain match fitness: "Gabriel has no pain at all so is ready but [after] three months out his physical condition is not optimal. Sergio is much better. Today he make a part of the training session. Tomorrow he will be ready."

Manchester City has received a major boost ahead of a massive FA Cup showdown with Gabriel Jesus in the traveling squad.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that Gabriel Jesus has returned to training two weeks ahead of schedule from a broken foot sustained in February and will head to London with the team ahead of Sunday's FA Cup semifinal with Arsenal, giving him a chance of being involved in the 18-man squad: "(He's) much, much better, today he made part of training with us. He’s is coming back with his happiness, and we are so happy. We are going to travel, all the group, to Wembley, he will be part of that and after that we’ll see." However, the Sky Blues will be without John Stones in central defense due to a muscular injury.

Manchester City will be waiting on the fitness of several key players ahead of the FA Cup semifinals with Arsenal on Sunday.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that defender John Stones and midfielder Fabian Delph both missed the club's 3-0 win over Southampton last weekend due to minor injuries that will be assessed this week. Both Stones and Delph have become consistent starters for the Sky Blues, with Delph adding an attacking flair in his role in central midfield. Ahead of the trip to Wembley this weekend, the club will also wait on the fitness of Bacary Sagna as the French international has missed the last month with an adductor injury.

Manchester City cruised to a 3-0 victory over Southampton at the St. Mary's Stadium on Saturday.

Kompany, on just his fifth appearance of the season, sent Pep Guardiola's side on their way to victory at the St. Mary's in the 56th minute, rising to power a header past Fraser Forster. The goal was Kompany's first in the Premier League since August 2015, and proved to be the spark needed to jump start the City attack after a quiet first-half. Leroy Sane was next to strike finishing off a clinical counter attack from inside the box before Sergio Aguero completed the scoring with a close-range header in the 80th minute. The victory moves City into third ahead of Liverpool, who play West Brom on Sunday, and seven points clear of fifth-place Everton and sixth-place Manchester United.

The Manchester City back-line is starting to return to a semblance of normalcy with Vincent Kompany leading the defense.

The Manchester City captain has missed much of the past two seasons with various injuries, but Kompany has recently worked his way back into the club's plans. Kompany started and played a full 90 minutes in the loss to Chelsea on Wednesday, and despite taking a knock, has recovered fully for the weekend match against Southampton. Said Guardiola: "After the game against Chelsea he had a little problem in his legs, and we didn’t want to take the risk, but of course the good news is he was able to play 90 minutes in a tough game at Stamford Bridge at a high level."

Gabriel Jesus' return to training has sparked plenty of enthusiasm, but Pep Guardiola put those hopes back into perspective.

The Manchester City winter arrival stunned the Premier League with his quick start, even displacing Sergio Aguero from the starting lineup. But a broken foot has sidelined him for the past two months. Despite returning to training last week, Gabriel Jesus remains a couple weeks away from a first-team return with Guardiola saying he doesn't think the forward will be available to face Arsenal in the FA Cup semifinals later this month: "The semi-finals are in two weeks?" he asked. "I think it's short. We thought the semi-finals of the Champions League but unfortunately it's gone. Hopefully [he will be fit for] the final [of the FA Cup] if we arrive. I don't know. He's getting better. The last two days, sunny days, he was out on the pitch. When the weather is like normal in Manchester he is off the pitch."

Manchester City kept their steadily fading top-four hopes intact with a dominant 3-1 win against Hull City at the Etihad.

Pep Guardiola has been under constant pressure during the Sky Blues' four-match winless streak in the Premier League, which ended with their first league win in more than a month. City was gifted an own goal from Ahmed Elmohamady in the 31st minute to give it a 1-0 halftime lead. Then it was Aguero who doubled the lead in the 48th after connecting on a brilliant back-post cross from Raheem Sterling for his 10th goal in his last 10 appearances. Sterling then set up a scintillating long-range effort from Fabian Delph, who has earned a spot in Guardiola's midfield since returning from injury. Claudio Bravo also got a call into the starting lineup, but it may not last long after ruining the clea sheet with a poor effort in the 88th.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said he will evaluate the status of Vincent Kompany and Fabian Delph on a match-to-match basis.

The two injury-prone veterans played the full 90 minutes against Chelsea in a 2-1 loss on Wednesday night, but Guardiola said they will have a fitness test before the weekend match against Hull City to make sure they aren't overworked, given their injury history: "Both of them played good. Fabian was excellent and maybe deserves more minutes than he had. Vincent the problem was he was injured all the time and, of course, he was ready for the last two, three weeks. We have to evaluate it now with them, the physios. Of course, it’s been a long time [since they played], especially Vincent."

Gabriel Jesus is on track to hand a late-season boost to Manchester City after returning to training on Monday.

The Brazilian phenom has missed much of the last two months after sustaining a foot injury against Bournemouth that required surgery. But Jesus has started running exercises and light training with the club, with manager Pep Guardiola hopeful of a return before the end of the season: "Yesterday is the first day he [Jesus] start to go to the pitch to run and walk. I don’t know exactly how many weeks he needs to come back but I think he is at the end of the part of his process to come back so we will see. Hopefully he can help us in the games at the end of the season."
Apr 6 - 8:08 AM

Leroy Sane continued his scorching pace with an early goal but Arsenal fought back twice for a 1-1 draw.

The result will be a disappointment to both sides but one of the stories of the second half of the season, the ascent of Leroy Sane, continued. Sane was a bit part player for much of his first three months at the Etihad. He is closing the season in fantastic form and should be among the potential breakout stars heading into next season.

Dimitri Seluk, the agent of Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has raised more controversy with his recent comments.

Toure is entering the final months of his contract and, after reviving his career at Manchester City over the last few months, Seluk said he is in talks with clubs from Italy and Spain over a free transfer. However, Seluk said if Manchester United came calling he would negotiate despite the two clubs' rivalry: "Why not? Jose Mourinho is a very good coach. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was together with Yaya in Barcelona...We waited until March 15 for what Manchester City will say but until now Manchester City don't say anything. Before March, we didn't negotiate with anybody because Yaya does a lot with Manchester City, so we waited. But we cannot wait until the last minute, until June and have no negotiations with anybody."

Kevin de Bruyne is hoping to be fit for next weekend despite his withdrawal from the Belgium squad because of injury.

Roberto Martinez confirmed on Friday that De Bruyne would miss the upcoming World Cup qualifier against Greece and subsequent friendly with Russia on Tuesday after he "felt pain after yesterday’s session." However, initial reports indicate that his omission was more of a precaution with De Bruyne expected to be available for the trip to Arsenal when the Premier League fixtures reconvene in seven days. City can ill-afford any slip-ups at this stage of the season if they harbour any real hopes of catching Chelsea at the top - the Citizens are currently 12pts adrift - and Pep will need of all his big hitters available despite the Gunners winning just one of their last five Premier League matches.

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan said he is targeting the summer for his return from knee surgery.

The summer signing from Borussia Dortmund sustained a cruciate ligament injury in December that required surgery, with an expected recovery time of up to nine months. But Gundogan, on tour of the United States promoting the club's friendlies this summer, said he is hoping to take part in preseason training ahead of next season: "It is getting better. It is a little bit frustrating but injuries are part of football. Unfortunately my injury is a long-term injury, it takes quite a few months to recover, but I am okay with that. That is fine for me, I work hard. I just try to do the best every day and try to come back as soon as possible on the field. Hopefully I can start pre-season."
