Gabriel Jesus and John Stones in doubt for Man City’s clash with Schalke

As per a report from the reliable Jose Alvarez Haya, Manchester City pair Gabriel Jesus and John Stones are both in serious doubt to feature versus Schalke.

Schalke vs Man City

Pep Guardiola’s Citizens are set to travel to Germany for the first-leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday night.

City head into proceedings having rediscovered their brilliant best of late, having picked up 13 wins from their last 14 outings across all competitions.

The latest of these came on Saturday night, when the Premier League champions put Newport County to the sword by 4 goals to 1 to secure their place in the quarter-finals of the League Cup.

Schalke, on the other hand, have managed just a solitary win from their last 5 across all competitions.

Domenico Tedesco’s men have endured a hugely-disappointing campaign as a whole to this point, with the Gelsenkirchen outfit currently sitting in a lowly 14th-place in the Bundesliga table.

City’s injury concerns

In a boost (albeit a minor one) to the prospects of Schalke on Wednesday night, though, news has emerged this evening that Manchester City have been dealt a pair of blows on the injury-front.

The players to have picked up the problems come in the form of Gabriel Jesus and John Stones.

Both have picked up muscle injuries, with Jose Alvarez Haya reporting that the City stars are viewed as ‘big doubts’ to feature at the VELTINS-Arena in two nights’ time:
