Key defender still struggling for City

Manchester City

Vincent Kompany is still struggling for full fitness ahead of Manchester City's Premier League trip to Liverpool on Sunday.

The City captain is yet to feature in 2018 due to a calf problem and manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed he remains a doubt.

Gabriel Jesus went to Barcelona for a check on his knee injury this week and Guardiola, who remains without Benjamin Mendy (knee) and Phil Foden (ankle), anticipates having his Brazilian striker back training in two to three weeks.

Provisional squad: Bravo, Ederson, Walker, Danilo, Kompany, Stones, Otamendi, Mangala, Delph, Zinchenko, Toure, Gundogan, Fernandinho, Diaz, Sterling, Sane, D Silva, B Silva, De Bruyne, Aguero.
