The popular midfielder took another step towards his goal by playing the first half of our friendly win at West Ham on Thursday.
“I feel good,” said Sandro, out since suffering hamstring injury against Liverpool on December 15. “I just need more training and more games like this to be back again and strong like before.
“Every game I watch I miss being out there on the pitch.
“We have some big games coming up. I don’t know if I’ll be ready for City but the most important thing is that I feel right and then I will be back.”
