Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leeds United

Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list ahead of Leeds United clash at Elland Road.

Manchester City resumes their quest for a third successive Premier League title when they travel to Elland Road to tackle Leeds United on Wednesday evening.

Pep Guardiola’s men are five points behind leaders Arsenal in the table.

However, the gap could increase to eight if the Gunners overcome West Ham United on Boxing Day.

The reigning English champions played out a five-goal EFL Cup thriller with Liverpool upon their return to competitive action last week, and a 3-2 success saw Guardiola’s charges advance to the quarter-finals.

Manchester City team news

Kalvin Phillips

Kalvin Phillips recovered from shoulder surgery in time to make England’s squad for the 2022 World Cup, but the former Leeds man arrived back from Qatar “overweight” according to Guardiola, and he will miss out on a reunion with his old club while he works his way back to match fitness.

Ruben Dias

Ruben Dias sustained a hamstring injury during Portugal’s World Cup quarter-final defeat to Morocco, and there are fears that the center-back could be sidelined for up to a month with the problem.

Julian Alvarez

Argentinian World Cup hero Julian Alvarez is enjoying an extended break in the wake of his successful Qatar exploits, and Guardiola is unlikely to rush the attacker back before City’s first fixture of the New Year against Chelsea on January 5, meaning that he will miss the trip to Leeds and his side’s New Year’s Eve clash with Everton.
