Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admits Jack Grealish is out of their Champions League round 16 tie with Sporting CP.
The England international missed the Premier League leaders’ victory at Norwich on Saturday after a recurrence of the shin problem that affected him while he was at Aston Villa last season.
Guardiola says the injury is not serious but the 26-year-old will not travel to the Portuguese capital for the first leg of City’s last-16 tie.
He said: “He is better but for tomorrow he is not available, along with Cole Palmer and Gabriel (Jesus).”
Forward Gabriel has not featured since suffering a knock while on international duty last month while youngster Palmer is still troubled by a foot injury.
