Kevin De Bruyne & Theo Walcott injury updates after Everton 1 – Man City 3

Will Kevin De Bruyne be fit for Dinamo Zagreb?

Man City are back in Champions League action on Tuesday night.

Following a 3-0 away win at Shakhtar Donetsk in their opener, Man City host Dinamo Zagreb at the Etihad Stadium in midweek.

Win, and City will be cruising towards the knockout stages of the competition.

But will Pep Guardiola be able to select Kevin De Bruyne for the Zagreb game?

De Bruyne is an injury doubt for the Champions League after he exited Saturday’s match at Everton with a knock to his ankle.

Speaking after the game, the Belgian said “I think I feel fine”.

Theo Walcott taken to hospital

Everton lost winger Theo Walcott during the match against Man City.

Walcott was taken off on a stretcher after he blocked a Raheem Sterling cross with his face.

Everton have since released a statement which read:

The club’s medical team will now follow concussion protocols as his recovery continues.

Walcott has since been discharged from hospital following medical checks.

It’s unclear when Walcott will be fit to play next.

Everton’s next match is an away trip to Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday.

Man City remain five points behind Liverpool at the top of the table.

Gabriel Jesus fired the reigning champs ahead at Goodison Park following a De Bruyne assist.

However, Everton leveled the match through Dominic Calvert-Lewin to even the score at the break.

A Riyad Mahrez free-kick put City back ahead in the 71st, while Raheem Sterling bagged City’s killer third in the final stages.
