Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan limped out of his team's last training session on the eve of Saturday's Champions League final against Chelsea.

The German midfielder bumped into City captain Fernandinho as he made a diving header during the session at the Estadio do Dragao on Friday.

The injury appeared to be a straightforward knock rather than a more concerning muscle problem, and City did not appear overly concerned.
