UEFA CL: Manchester City star set to return

Manchester City's Leroy Sane could make a surprise return for the first leg of Tuesday's Champions League last-16 tie away to Swiss side Basel.

Germany winger Sane had initially been ruled out for six weeks with an ankle ligament injury sustained in City's FA Cup win over Cardiff on 28 January. City manager Pep Guardiola said the 22-year-old is back ahead of schedule.

"He's not in perfect condition but he is with us. The physios did a good job," Guardiola said. "He wants to help us. I'm surprised. He has worked a lot, but I didn't expect with a young guy how professional he was."

Spain play-maker David Silva and left-back Fabian Delph are also back in contention for the Premier League leaders after overcoming respective hip and knee problems. Guardiola has a doubt over record signing Aymeric Laporte after the French centre-back did not take a full part in training ahead of the tie at St Jakob-Park,

City defender Benjamin Mendy and striker Gabriel Jesus are both long-term absentees with knee injuries.
