The majority of the squad were back in training today (Thursday) with the exception of Emmanuel Adebayor and Nabil Bentaleb, who were on international duty in African Nations Cup qualifying on Wednesday.
“We have another day to train and after that we will choose the squad for City,” said Mauricio on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the news was positive on both Kyle Naughton, injured against Southampton last time out and Kyle Walker, recovering from pelvic surgery.
Mauricio added: “Kyle Naughton is getting better and perhaps he will have the possibililty to be in the squad for the next game (Asteras Tripolis).
“Kyle Walker is still recovering from his injury but he’s doing okay, he’s started to run and that’s good news. He improves every day but it’s important not to rush him because most the important thing is a full recovery after surgery.”
