Manchester City Face Major Injury Concerns Ahead of Arsenal Clash

Manchester City could be facing a significant setback as they prepare to take on Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend. Reports suggest that three key players, Kyle Walker, John Stones, and Manuel Akanji, are at risk of missing the crucial encounter.

The defensive trio’s availability is in doubt, with Walker being a serious concern after sustaining a hamstring injury while on international duty with England. The right-back was forced off in the first half of England’s 1-0 loss to Brazil and will now undergo tests to determine his availability for the upcoming match.

Stones, the central defender, is also facing a race against time to be fit for the Arsenal clash. He suffered an injury while representing England in a 2-2 draw with Belgium. While he remains hopeful that his absence won’t be prolonged, his chances of featuring in the game are uncertain.

Akanji, who returned early from international duty with Switzerland, is also doubtful for the match. The defender picked up a knock while away with his national team and was unable to participate in their 1-0 friendly win against the Republic of Ireland.

These potential absences pose a significant challenge for Manchester City, as they aim to secure a positive result against Arsenal. The team will be eagerly awaiting updates on the fitness of Walker, Stones, and Akanji, hoping that they can recover in time for the crucial Premier League clash.
