Stones set to return for City

John Stones is set to feature in his first Premier League match for more than a month when Manchester City face West Brom.

The former Everton defender has not played since the 3-1 victory against Hull City in early April but Pep Guardiola has hinted that he could return to the side for Tuesday's match against the Baggies.

However, the City boss fears that Fabian Delph will not play against this term because of a leg injury.

Guardiola said: "Fabian Delph is injured. I don't think he will play again this season. The others are OK except Gundogan and Bravo; John Stones has come back."

Meanwhile, Guardiola has hailed Pablo Zabaleta, who is set to play his last game at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday.

The Argentinian defender will end his nine-year stay with City at the end of this season, with Guardiola saying of the 32-year-old: "I have a lot of respect for people, players and managers who do what they do for a long time.

"His impact here was amazing, he was one of the first players to come here, he has helped the club to where it is right now.

"We are still playing for important things. We have two finals left and we have to focus on that."

City defeated West Brom 4-0 at The Hawthorns earlier in the season and are 9/1 to repeat that scoreline on Tuesday with Zabaleta available at 3/1 to score at any time against Tony Pulis' team.
