De Bruyne has missed the last three matches in all competitions with a hamstring problem, having missed a large part of the first half of the campaign through two knee injuries.

Mendy has also struggled with fitness issues for a second successive season, also with knee problems, and he made a tentative return to action in January against Burton after months on the sidelines.

Midfielder Fernandinho, who is nearing the final year of his City contract, has been missing since February with a muscle problem, while Stones has also missed the last three matches with a groin issue.

Fellow centre-back Aymeric Laporte, who recently returned from a hamstring injury, also trained with the group of City players not currently a part of the ongoing international matches, overseen by boss Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Campus.
