Pep Guardiola has confirmed Benjamin Mendy and Vincent Kompany are not ready to return to action for Manchester City against Newport County on Saturday.
Mendy hasn't played since January 23 as he continues to be hampered by a knee problem, while captain Kompany hasn't featured since the January 3 victory over Liverpool due to a muscle problem.
Sergio Aguero has been recognised for his hat-trick against Arsenal by winning a place in the latest EA SPORTS FIFA Team of the Week.
The 30-year-old has scored in each of his last four appearances for Manchester City and continued his good form on Sunday by scoring all three of City’s goals in their 3-1 win over the Gunners.

Man City are the new favourites to win the Premier League title ahead of Liverpool, according to the bookies.
The Blues remain 5/6 to retain the trophy after they closed Liverpool's gap at the top of table considerably in recent weeks but Liverpool's odds have drifted out to 11/10.
It seemed as though City were in dire straights after losing to Newcastle just a week ago but Liverpool failed to take advantage and stretch their lead to seven points with a draw to Leicester City the following night.
Pep Guardiola couldn’t confirm whether left-back Benjamin Mendy will be available to face Arsenal this Sunday, but again ruled out club captain Vincent Kompany.
City host the Gunners in a must-win game after being handed a lifeline when Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw by Leicester on Wednesday after City slumped to a shock defeat to Newcastle the day before.
Though Liverpool extended the gap to five points, it could have been seven and if City can negotiate a tough run of games against Arsenal, Everton and Chelsea, they may fancy their chances of hunting down Jurgen Klopp’s men.
