Kevin De Bruyne Not Fit for Manchester City  Wolves.

Pep Guardiola has confirmed Kevin De Bruyne has not recovered in time to be fit for Manchester City’s match with Wolves on Sunday.

The Belgian midfielder picked up a groin injury in the win over Everton last weekend and missed their Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb.

Asked if City need to be more cautious with Belgian given his previous spells on the sidelines, Guardiola said: “No, but sometimes he is not playing or is a substitute, like at Norwich. When he feels good, he is good.

“After the international break he will be ready. It is not a big problem.”

With Stones and centre-back partner Aymeric Laporte missing, Fernandinho could start at the back alongside Nicolas Otamendi for the third time in eight days.
