Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes is back in training after making a quick recovery from his kick to the face in Saturday’s 5-0 win over Liverpool.
But captain Vincent Kompany missed training on Tuesday and is expected to miss the Champions League opener with Feyenoord with a calf strain that ruled him out of the game against Liverpool.
The Brazilian, 24, needed eight stitches in his face after being caught by a high boot from Sadio Mane during the 5-0 win over Liverpool on Saturday.
But he trained on Tuesday wearing a headguard to protect the affected area.
He could be involved on Wednesday but, if not, Claudio Bravo is set to deputise.
Ederson required lengthy treatment and was carried off on a stretcher after the 37th-minute collision with Mane, who was sent off.
He returned to watch the final stages of his side’s victory, and City boss Guardiola said after the game he hoped Ederson “can come back soon”.
But Kompany is unlikely to travel to the Netherlands after suffering the injury to his calf on international duty with Belgium.
The 31-year-old has suffered from muscle injuries in recent seasons and City are unlikely to take any risks with his fitness.
