Boost for City as duo return ahead of Manchester Derby

Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus are reported to be in good shape

BY NAMULONGO PETER,27TH APRIL 2017-Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed that his striking duo Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus are fit to feature in Manchester Derby on Thursday night.

The Citizens host their bitter rivals United at Etihad with only a point separating the two. Aguero picked up an injury during FA Cup semi final defeat to Arsenal on Sunday, while midfield maestro David Silva came off in the clash at Wembley. Youngster Gabriel Jesus has been on the sidelines for a couple of months after a metatarsal injury  looks set to play against United on Thursday night.

– David Silva real, real doubt,  I don’t know if he will be ready to play after what happened in the first minutes in the semi-final. Gabriel has no pain at all so is ready but [after] three months out his physical condition is not optimal, Sergio is much better, Guardiola told the club’s official website.

The Citizens will end the campaign without silverware but are fighting to finish in the top four in order to secure a place in next season’s Champions League.
