Manchester City duo miss training ahead of weekend clash with Everton

De Bruyne and Grealish MIA ahead of weekend clash

Manchester City are in full swing with their preparations for a weekend clash with Everton at the Etihad on Saturday, but the status of star duo Kevin De Bruyne and Jack Grealish remains uncertain.

Neither player was pictured in a training video taken earlier today as Pep Guardiola put his Citizens’ kit to the test before the Toffees came to town, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Summer signing Jack Grealish had returned to the club early for an injury assessment and subsequently missed England’s 10-0 beat against the San Marino minnows on Monday night.

As for creative fulcrum Kevin De Bruyne, the Belgian star was also not featured in the training video, casting doubt on fitness and the availability of the key pair as City look to tempt Chelsea at the head of the table who will face Leicester City at the King. Power Stadium in Saturday’s midday game.

Double fitness boost received by Manchester City

While the status surrounding Manchester City stars Kevin De Bruyne and Jack Grealish is unclear, both Bernardo Silva and Cole Palmer are fit and available for selection ahead of the weekend after the pair suffered their own fitness fits.

City star Cole Palmer was taken out of the England Under-21 squad against the Czech Republic and also missed the following friendly against Georgia, while Bernardo Silva did not play against Ireland due muscle problems as was mentioned earlier during the international break.

Their availability is certainly timely given concerns over De Bruyne and Grealish, but City should still be seen as a comfortable favorite this weekend against an out of form Everton side who failed to win in their five. last outings in the Premier League.
