Manchester City dealt a big blow when Guardiola confirms Stones & Laporte’s possible return schedule

Manchester City dealt a big blow when Guardiola confirms Stones & Laporte's possible return schedule

Manchester City vs Southampton

Manchester City return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon.

The Citizens will host Southampton on a 3pm kick-off, which the hosts should have no trouble winning.

Barring their opening weekend loss to Tottenham, Manchester City are off to a good start to the campaign, which has already included it beating Norwich 5-0, Arsenal 5-0 and RB Leipzig 6-3 earlier this week. .

As a result, the Sky Blues are widely expected to hit Southampton. The Saints haven’t won a league game this season, having drawn three and lost one.

They’ve also kept just a clean sheet this season and have a lousy record against City. Southampton have beaten Manchester City just once since 2016, and in this last campaign match, the Manchester side emerged as a 5-2 winner.

Pep Guardiola on Stones & Laporte

Before Saturday’s game, Pep Guardiola held his pre-Southampton press conference on Friday.

The Spaniard addressed a series of topics in his press conference, including the current situation of the team.

Before the Leipzig match it was reported earlier this week that John Stones and Aymeric Laporte were not fit enough to participate in a training session on Tuesday, and had doubts for the RB Leipzig match.

This turned out to be the case, with no defender making the team of the day.

But when he spoke about the pair on Friday, Pep suggested that both players appear to miss at least the next three City games.

The Spanish set who doesn’t know if they’ll be back for Wycombe or Chelsea, City’s next two outings after Southampton, but hopefully they can be ready after that:

“Muscle injury. Stones didn’t play for us and he played 90 minutes for the national team and came back injured. Laporte came back with some drawbacks, but he wanted to play Leicester, but after that match his problems were a bit higher and we didn’t want to take risks. I don’t know against Wycombe or Chelsea, but I hope they can be ready later. “

This would leave only Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake as natural center-back options for the next three games, as well as being without two of their best defenders for a major clash with Chelsea.
