Man City boost for title decider as Stones and Walker return to training

Manchester City have received a boost ahead of their last Premier League game of the season.

The Citizens are aware that a win against Aston Villa at home is necessary, if they are to keep the destiny of the Premier League trophy in their hands.

Manager Pep Guardiola will be delighted with the news that John Stones and Kyle Walker are back in training ahead of the clash on Sunday.

City were previously using midfielder Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte as a makeshift center-back partnership.

The duo struggled against West Ham United, as City only managed a 2-2 draw away from home.

But with their two key defenders fit, the champions should be confident of claiming a home win and securing another league title.
