Manchester City defender John Stones is in line to return for next weekend’s Premier League clash with Leicester City after missing Saturday’s draw at Burnley with a knee problem, manager Pep Guardiola said.



Pep Guardiola opted against risking the England international at Turf Moor, revealing he has sustained a knee injury.

With Vincent Kompany back from his latest calf problem and Aymeric Laporte recruited from Athletic Bilbao this week, Guardiola had the luxury of giving Stones extra recovery time after he’d missed the midweek win against West Brom due to illness.

The England international has made 15 league appearances this season apart from featuring nine times in domestic cup competitions and the Uefa Champions League.



“He has a bit of a problem in the knee and I prefer for him to rest, to recover a bit,” said the City manager. “It is a little bit painful .I have Vincent back and Aymeric Laporte is already here “.

“I decided not to use him today, let him recover and come back better against Leicester and Basel.”

With City enjoying their first Saturday to Saturday without a game since the first week of the season, Guardiola is giving his entire staff four days off before they host Leciester at the Etihad.



After the visit of eighth-placed Leicester, City return to Champions League action with a last 16 first leg clash at Swiss side Basel on February 13
