John Stones and Fabian Delph have been forced to withdraw from the England squad, while Nicolas Otamendi has pulled out of the Argentina squad.

Stones missed the Blues' 3-2 win at Swansea at the weekend and last played in the 1-0 win at Bournemouth where he came off with a muscle issue.

Delph played against the Swans but came off in the second-half of the game at The Liberty Stadium.
