Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho is back in contention for City’s away match at Stoke City’s Bet365 Stadium on Monday evening.
The Brazilian hobbled out of the Carabao Cup Final against Arsenal a fortnight ago with a hamstring strain and has not played since.
However, the 32 year old returned to light training this week and he will be assessed prior to Monday night’s Premier League clash.
In his pre match press conference on Friday, City boss Pep Guardiola suggested that Fernandinho was recovering well from his injury.
