Gael Clichy's prognosis had been a bit murky thus far but Manuel Pelligrini clarified this week that the left back would be out another six or seven weeks.
While this is bad news for Clichy and fans of depth at the left back position, it is great for Aleksandar Kolarov and everyone who took a risk on picking him up in fantasy leagues. By no means a sure starter, Kolarov has been the most productive defender in most formats thus far with three clean sheets and a goal to his credit as well as a bundle of peripheral stats. Another nearly two months of starts will be a huge bonus for managers who might have been getting nervous at the potential return of last season's regular starter. Aug 28 - 1:34 PM

Gael Clichy could reclaim his starting spot from Aleksandar Kolarov as soon as Week 35 against Spurs at White Hart Lane.

Clichy has been out with a minor injury leaving Kolarov to get a few starts in a row. Clichy was widely criticized for his performance in City's Manchester Derby loss to local rivals Manchester United. He was particularly poor attempting to mark Marouane Fellaini. On the basis of that poor performance it remains to be seen if Clichy is restored immediately to the starting line-up.

Manuel Pellegrini is sweating on the fitness of a number of his first team players after Gael Clichy, James Milner and Vincent Kompany picked up injuries during the derby loss to Manchester United. However the Chilean has been boosted by the news that David Silva returned to training less than 48 hours after the Spanish midfielder was taken to hospital with suspected collar and cheekbone fractures.

Silva needed medical attention for several minutes and as the player left the field on a stretcher [requiring oxygen] the early signs did not look good; however after further tests the player was released on Sunday evening. The sight of Silva in training on Tuesday will be welcomed by City who have a growing injury list with up-to 7-players at risk of missing out against Aston Villa in GW34. Wilfried Bony [ankle and knee] is struggling while Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri [unspecified] are doubts. James Milner [knee] is ongoing and Vincent Kompany may not play again this term.

Manchester City's Gael Clichy filled in at right-back against Newcastle on Sunday and put in a magnificent display to help his side to victory.

It was a surprise to see the Frenchman line-up on the right in place of Pablo Zabaleta, who hasn't quite recovered from his long summer, with Aleksandar Kolarov on the left. But Clichy didn't let anyone down as he won eight tackles, intercepted four passes and generally looked awesome. When you throw in clean sheet points it was a monster week in the Yahoo game, with a return of 18 points, and we'll be monitoring the full-back over the coming weeks to see if he can keep up this form.

Left back Gael Clichy has been ruled out of Manchester City's match against Stoke City, along with skipper Vincent Kompany, Micah Richards and new signing Martin Demichelis.

Clichy's absence is especially interesting to fantasy managers as it opens the door for Aleksandar Kolarov to start. While Kolarov in reality is not a highly rated defender, he does possess an arsenal of attacking ability, will be on plenty of set-pieces and delivers crosses and key passes that tend to turn into assists. Investment is recommended here.

Manchester City left-back Gael Clichy has signed a new four-year deal that commits him to the club until 2017.

Clichy was one of the more consistent City performers throughout the season and has been duly rewarded with a new and improved contract. The deal is likely to see Aleksandar Kolarov on the bench for much of the new campaign, although the Serbian may seek a move away from the Etihad after starting just 9 league games this term.
