Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne was absent from training ahead of their Premier League clash against Tottenham on Thursday.
Life does not get any easier for City, as they were defeated by Manchester United at the weekend.
Games are coming thick and fast, and they must win against Spurs to have any chance of remaining in the title race with Arsenal.
Per the Manchester Evening News, De Bruyne did not train on Monday, while Ruben Dias was back after an absence of a few matches.
Another who was involved in training is John Stones, with the England defender missing the loss to United.
City will take on a beleaguered Tottenham, who were beaten 2-0 by Arsenal at home over the weekend.
