Manchester City vs Arsenal - Mendy to face fitness test ahead of Arsenal clash

Manchester City will check on the fitness of left-back Benjamin Mendy ahead of Sunday’s Premier League visit of Arsenal.

The France international has sat out the last two games as City ease him back into action following knee surgery but he has been involved in training this week.

Captain Vincent Kompany remains on the sidelines with a muscular problem and manager Pep Guardiola says he is unsure when the defender will return. Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo (Achilles) is a long-term absentee.

Arsenal could hand a debut to new signing Denis Suarez when they travel to face Manchester City on Sunday.

The 25-year-old former City youngster joined on loan from Barcelona for the rest of the season and is in line to make his bow at the Etihad Stadium.

Captain Laurent Koscielny (jaw) is fit to return and Henrikh Mkhitaryan could feature after overcoming a foot problem but Danny Welbeck and Sokratis Papastathopoulos (both ankle), Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding (both knee) remain out.
