Manchester City key trio set for training return ahead of Liverpool clash in Community Shield
Phil Foden, John Stones and Ilkay Gundogan missed Man City’s pre-season tour of America.
And they'll renew their rivalry once again after just a point separating them in the top flight.
City have been on tour in America during pre-season where they picked up friendly wins over Club America and Bayern Munich.
The trio reportedly did not meet the requirements to enter the States.
Instead, they travelled with Brian Barry-Murphy's under-23s to Croatia.
They were due to arrive back in England today before linking up with Guardiola and his squad tomorrow.
What’s been said
The Man City boss told the club's website: “They trained really well.
"I have an update every day with Brian, the manager of the EDS (elite development squad.
"Knowing John, Ilkay and Phil, they are like this.
"Tomorrow (Monday) they come back to Manchester like us and on Tuesday they will start training with us ahead of the Community Shield."
Liverpool will be hopeful that Alisson Becker can feature against City.
The keeper has missed the past two friendlies against Crystal Palace and RB Leipzig.
However, Alisson has returned to training during the Reds’ training camp in Austria.
