Man City’s Stevan Jovetic an injury doubt for Arsenal showdown
Steven Jovetic returns to Manchester City for treatment after picking up a hamstring injury with Montenegro
Steven Jovetic has returned to Manchester City for treatment after being ruled out of Montenegro’s clash with Moldova with a hamstring injury.
The 24-year-old sustained the problem in training at the weekend and is now a doubt for Saturday’s trip to Premier League rivals Arsenal.
He suffered the problem in training on Sunday, trying to catch a faster ball
Montenegro’s press officer Ivan Radovic told The Guardian: “Yes, Stevan Jovetic has a hamstring injury and had returned to City.
“He can’t play today [against Moldova]. All I know is that he is unavailable for this game. He suffered the problem in training on Sunday, trying to catch a faster ball.”
Jovetic’s young Manchester City career has been blighted by injuries, and this latest setback is his third hamstring problem since December.
He scored twice in a man-of-the-match display in the 3-1 win over Liverpool last month.
