Manchester City’s preparations for their upcoming clash against Premier League leaders Arsenal hit a snag as defenders John Stones and Kyle Walker were both absent from training.The absence of the key defensive duo has raised concerns about their availability for the crucial match scheduled for Sunday at the Etihad Stadium.

City, who are trailing Arsenal by just a point in the league standings with 10 matches remaining, are desperate for a positive result. However, the international break proved to be detrimental for City, with both Stones and Walker sustaining injuries while on duty with the England national team.

Walker, who started the friendly against Brazil, was forced off after just 20 minutes due to tightness in his hamstring. Stones suffered a similar fate during the draw with Belgium, signaling a thigh complaint early in the game.

Their potential absence adds to City’s injury concerns, with the squad already depleted. Fans await further updates on their status as manager Pep Guardiola addresses the media ahead of the highly anticipated encounter.
