EPL: Man City receive big injury boost ahead of Arsenal clash

Manchester City have received a major boost ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Arsenal, with defender Kyle Walker’s injury considered “not too serious”.

Walker pulled up during the first half of England’s friendly with Brazil on Saturday.

The full-back was forced off after just 20 minutes with an apparent hamstring injury.

It left City boss, Pep Guardiola sweating ahead of a top-of-the-table clash with the Gunners on Sunday.

But tests on the hamstring problem have revealed it isn’t as severe as first feared.

According to Sky Sports, Walker’s injury is “not thought to be too serious”.

The hamstring issue is described as being “tight” rather than a “strain”, with progress on Walker to be monitored over the coming days.

The report adds that City are “hopeful” the 33-year-old will be ready to face Arsenal in that crunch Premier League encounter at the weekend.
