Pep Guardiola has revealed that Manchester City have no new injury concerns before the Premier League clash against Fulham. The likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Erling Haaland and Phil Foden have all missed action in recent weeks but the fearsome attacking trio are all fully fit with City eyeing two trophies.

On Saturday, the reigning champions can gain an early advantage over Arsenal in the title race when they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage. Despite all the injuries suffered this season, Guardiola appears to have been handed the dream scenario with just a few weeks of the campaign remaining.

“No, everything is fine,” the City boss admitted when asked for the latest team news. “For many years we have had an incredible medical department with lots of physios doing lots of work. True, we are fortunate for the last season to have few injuries.”

Here, Manchester Evening News takes a look at some of the players that have dealt with recent issues that may not yet be fully match fit.

Erling Haaland

Haaland returned from a muscular injury in late April and marked his first start since being back by scoring four goals against Manchester City.

In his latest press conference, Pep Guardiola spoke about Haaland's angry reaction to being withdrawn which saw him point to often he was fouled.

“There were a lot of long balls into the channels where he won the position and was being pulled by the opponent and it was never [given as] a foul,” he said. When he's level with the shoulders I can understand but sometimes he won the position and was being pulled.

“He went down and sometimes it was no foul. It happens every game a lot of times. He was just a bit frustrated for these actions but I can guarantee how happy he was today.”

Potential return date: Returned.

Ruben Dias

Dias has been plagued by injury concerns this season with the Portugal international only just returning to the matchday squad from his latest blow. Against Wolves, he was an unused substitute.

Potential return date: Fulham (A) - Saturday, May 11.


In the win against Nottingham Forest, Ederson was subbed off with a shoulder injury. However, he was back in between the sticks against Wolves the following week.

"It’s really good that the injury wasn’t like we expected after," Guardiola revealed before last Saturday's game. "He had a lot of pain but the ligament was not broken.’

Potential return date: Returned.
