EPL title race: Three key Man City players doubtful for Arsenal clash

 Manchester City could be without at least three key players when they face Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend.

The defensive trio Kyle Walker, John Stones, and Manuel Akanji are reportedly at risk of missing their side’s vital encounter.

SPORT9JAA reports that Walker is a serious doubt for the clash after sustaining a hamstring injury while on international duty with England this week.

The England international trudged off in the first half of his nation’s 1-0 loss to Brazil.

He will now undergo tests on his hamstring to determine his availability while Stones will also be studied.

The central defender suffered an injury representing the Three Lions in a 2-2 draw with Belgium.

He’s losing his fight to be fit for Arsenal’s visit but is hopeful that he won’t be sidelined for an extended period, per the Daily Star.

For Akanji, his chances of being fit for the game are doubtful after he returned early from international duty, per The Sun.

He picked up a knock while away with Switzerland and missed their 1-0 friendly win against the Republic of Ireland on Tuesday.
