Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho and Vincent Kompany train ahead of Southampton clash

Manchester City have been boosted by the involvement of Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho and Vincent Kompany in training ahead of Sunday’s game against Southampton.

Pep Guardiola revealed at his rescheduled Saturday press conference that the trio attended Friday’s training session but the City boss has yet to decide if they will feature at St Mary’s.

“Everybody is fit but some players have some problems,” Guardiola told the media.

“We will decide tomorrow but Ferna, Gabriel Jesus and Kompany have been in training.

“I’ve said many times how important he (Fernandinho) is – his position and qualities. Of course, he is so important, like Kevin De Bruyne. We have to find a solution to win games.

“We tried (to sign a midfielder) but the market was not there and it didn’t happen.”

Guardiola also reiterated that despite rumours he has no intention of dipping into the transfer market in January and will stick with what he has.

“I think my answer is clear. It’s still the same.”
