The Manchester City attack is slowly working back to full strength as Wilfried Bony and Jesus Navas are both fit for the club's League Cup final on Sunday.
Bony has missed the last two months with what was initially thought to be a minor calf injury. However, scans revealed a bone bruise that kept the forward on the training table for more than a month longer than expected, but fortunately for the club, Sergio Aguero had returned from his injury. Meanwhile, Navas had missed the last three weeks with a hamstring injury, which was the second blow in a week for City after losing Kevin De Bruyne. Upon his return, Navas will likely be resigned to a bench role before reaching full fitness and could be set for a return to the starting role within a week. Feb 28 - 10:31 AM

Manchester City is seeing one of the club's deepest positions turn into a selection crisis as Jesus Navas is the latest to join a join injury list in attacking midfield.

Manuel Pellegrini said the winger will miss at least three weeks with a hamstring injury sustained on Tuesday in a 1-0 win against Sunderland. The Sky Blues are already missing Kevin De Bruyne with a long-term knee injury and have loaned out winger Patrick Roberts. That leaves Raheem Sterling and David Silva as the club's only first team wingers. With Wilfried Bony out, Kelechi Iheanacho could continue to play as Pellegrini shifted to a 4-4-2 against Sunderland with Iheanacho paired with Sergio Aguero up top. And with David Silva still struggling to recover his form after a series of injuries, look to Aguero to take on the brunt of the club's attacking responsibility in coming weeks, as if he is not already doing so now.

Man City conceded their first PL goal for 572 minutes and stumbled to their second home defeat in the space of four days…

A week is a long time in football. Man City’s perfect PL record was bound to go sometime and it isn’t the first time this City side has suffered a post-CL defeat hangover. West Ham were probably going to be the team to do it too. Having won at Arsenal and Liverpool already, they have now matched a feat only Everton (1995-96), Man United (2004-05) and Chelsea (2005-06) have managed in the PL era. David Silva’s warm-up injury was a blow. Kevin De Bruyne took his central role and showed the quality that £54m buys. But late replacement Jesus Navas’s distribution is not up to par. From his 12 crosses, not one reached a team mate. Nicolas Otamendi looked solid in for Vincent Kompany, but the big worry will be Sergio Aguero’s lack of goals (for FL managers and Pellegrini alike). Three away matches – in the Capital One Cup, PL and CL will tell us much about this City team.

Jesus Navas scored after 13 seconds for City's first and then scored in stoppage time for their sixth against Spurs and their 13th over their past two home matches.

Manchester City went to fourth in the table at least temporarily with their 6-0 drubbing of Spurs in Sunday's early match. Hugo Lloris' early mistake led to a Sergio Aguero shot that was saved but the rebound fell to Navas who converted it after 13 seconds and the route was on. Sergio Aguero also scored a brace and Alvaro Negredo added one around a Sandro own goal. It was a comprehensive destruction that could have seen City score more.
