Manchester City’s defensive line faces a setback as Manuel Akanji withdraws from the Switzerland squad due to a knock. The 28-year-old defender’s exit comes just before a crucial match against title rivals Arsenal. Akanji’s availability for the upcoming Premier League clash is uncertain, leaving City concerned as they trail Arsenal by a single point in the table.

Having made 34 appearances across all competitions this season, Akanji’s absence could be felt keenly by Pep Guardiola’s side. His withdrawal underscores the significance of Sunday’s fixture against Arsenal, which will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

City will be eager for Akanji’s swift recovery as they navigate through a tight title race. With their sights set on securing the Premier League crown, they’ll be hoping for a positive update on Akanji’s condition ahead of the crucial showdown with Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.
