Just as Benjamin Mendy and Vincent Kompany returned to training, Manchester City could be without two other first team members it is reported today.
According to well-informed Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez, both Gabriel Jesus and John Stones are serious doubts for Wednesday’s match against Schalke with ‘muscular problems’.

Both men played the full 90 minutes in City’s 4-1 FA Cup win over Newport County at the weekend, and the dodgy pitch may have contributed to their current problems.
There are unconfirmed rumours that Jesus could miss two weeks or so, but what seems certain for now is that the pair are likely to sit out Wednesday’s trip to Gelsenkirchen.
