Man City could be without another player when they welcome Arsenal to Etihad Stadium next weekend following the report that Matheus Nunes was forced to miss Portugal training to receive treatment for a ‘knock in his foot’.

Matheus Nunes - Man City

Nunes who joined Manchester City last summer has contributed to the impressive campaign of the Pep Guardiola’s side. The Cityzens are still competing to win three major tournaments; the Premier League title, the Emirate FA Cup, and the prestigious UEFA Champions League trophy for the second consecutive time.

The Portuguese also played a major role as Man City won the first-ever Club World Cup late last year. However, he might have joined a number of Pep Guardiola’s squad players who will not be available for selection against Arsenal.

The midfielder was part of the Portuguese team that defeated Sweden 5-2 in a friendly match played last Thursday. He, however, was unable to train ahead of the second friendly game against Slovenia on Tuesday evening.

According to local outlet B24, the midfielder who has made 23 appearances for Manchester City in a competition this campaign suffered a knock in his foot and was receiving treatment, therefore, he had to miss training with his national teammates.

While Matheus Nunes remains a doubt for the Arsenal match, Kyle Walker who was subbed off at the 20 minutes with what appears to be a hamstring injury during the England and Brazil friendly match may be unavailable for the match.

The Manchester City captain took to his Instagram page to show how disappointed he was and gave an update about the injury crisis.

“Frustrating to come off injured in last night’s game especially when captaining the side. A truly great honour.” he wrote, accompanied by a series of pictures from the game with the armband – as well as hobbling off and touching the hamstring.

Jack Grealish is another City player that will certainly miss the crucial Premier League match while Kelvin De Bruyne remains a doubt.
