Manuel Pellegrini is expecting to 'continue with the same situation' against West Brom, meaning he expects David Silva, Jesus Navas, Matija Nastasic and Yaya Toure to miss out through injury.

The absence of Yaya Toure and Nastasic is no surprise, but the loss of Silva and Navas for a second game in a row is a blow for Pellegrini, as both men had been tipped to return against West Brom. James Milner and Javi Garcia are therefore likely to continue in midfield, with Samir Nasri set for a key attacking role in support of Sergio Aguero and either Edin Dzeko or Alvaro Negrado.

David Silva missed Manchester City's surprise draw with Sunderland due to injury.

Twitter reports suggest Silva missed out with an ankle problem he initally picked up against Manchester United last month. Suggestions are the midfielder will be okay to face West Brom on Monday, but we'll ensure an update is provided in the team news post on Friday. Manuel Pellegrini will be desperate for Silva to make a speedy recovery, with talisman Yaya Toure already missing for the next two weeks and Sergio Aguero still feeling his way back to full fitness.

Manchester City will be missing Yaya Toure for up to two weeks due to the groin injury picked up against Liverpool.

This is obviously bad news for City, but Yaya was initially ruled out of playing again this season, so it could've been worse. The midfielder will miss the second part of this double-week against Sunderland, as well as the clash against West Brom in Week 35, but Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping he could be ready to return against Crystal Palace at the end of April. In other news, Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero both came through the Liverpool game without problems and will be expected to start on Wednesday.

Yaya Toure was substituted in the first half of Manchester City's 3-2 defeat to Liverpool due to injury.

Toure injured himself attempting a shot early in the game and never looked comfortable before he was eventually withdrawn on 19 minutes. It looked to be a groin problem, and it would appear unlikely that the midfielder will be able to face Sunderland in midweek. We await official news from City over the coming days.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed Sergio Aguero is fit and ready to face Liverpool on Sunday.

Pellegrini backed up reports from earlier in the week by confirming "Sergio is OK; he worked all week with the squad normally, so he doesn't have any problem". This seems to suggest the striker will start against Liverpool, which is great news for Manchester City and makes Aguero an extremely tempting option for the double-week. Pellegrini also confirmed that - with the exception of long-term absentee Matija Nastasic - he has a fully fit squad to choose from.
Apr 11 - 9:40 AM

The Manchester Evening News are reporting Sergio Aguero will be fit to face Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

Manuel Pellegrini has managed this instance of Aguero's hamstring injury very carefully after the striker had been rushed back earlier in the season. Reports suggest Aguero was probably fit enough to face Southampton last weekend but he has been held back to ensure 100% fitness for the match that will play a major part in deciding this season's Premier League title. After the Liverpool clash, Manchester City then play again in Week 34, at home to Sunderland, so Aguero should be near the top of the list of players you include in your fantasy team.
Apr 9 - 4:32 AM

Manchester City turned the screw on their Premier League title rivals by beating Southampton 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

Yaya Toure opened the scoring with a penalty after Edin Dzeko had been fouled, before Rickie Lambert levelled things up from the spot as Southampton started dominating the game. However, goals from Samir Nasri and Dzeko in first-half stoppage time put City well in control, and a late effort from Stevan Jovetic made it 14 wins from 15 home league games this season. Manuel Pellegrini's men move within a point of Liverpool with a game in hand and the two sides face each other in Week 34.

Sergio Aguero has been ruled out for Manchester City's match against Southampton this weekend.

This was doesn't come as a surprise as Aguero has stated he is not rushing back from this one. Manchester City have no problem scoring without Aguero and both the club and the striker want to ensure he is healthy in the long run. If there are no setbacks, expect Aguero to return for the important Premier League match against Liverpool next week. In the meantime, Edin Dzeko is expected to start against Southampton.
Apr 4 - 2:07 PM

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has admitted he cannot afford to rush his return from injury.

Aguero injured his hamstring back in January before aggravating it against Barcelona on his return to first team action, and he is determined not to return before he has fully healed. The player admitted that not only would another occurrence of the injury put the rest of his Premier League season in doubt, but it would also risk his chances of appearing at the World Cup in June, and understandably this is something he is not prepared to do. Expect Eden Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo to share the leading man duties until Aguero is fully ready in a couple of weeks.

Apr 1 - 4:12 AM

After a brief stint on the injury report midweek, David Silva made the starting XI for Manchester City and scored the opening goal, but Arsenal would level as the two big clubs fought to a 1-1 draw.

Silva showed no lack of fitness as he was the central figure in the City attack, culminating in the opening goal. After zigzagging his way through the Arsenal defense, he found Edin Dzeko at the back post. Dzeko fired off the post but Silva never slowed his run and was in the perfect spot to squeak int he rebound for his sixth league goal this season. Otherwise, it was a quiet day for the rest of the Sky Blues.
Mar 29 - 3:46 PM

Serio Aguero is set to miss out against Arsenal due to the hamstring injury he's been nursing for the past few weeks.

Aguero has been dealing with the hamstring all season long and City have finally decided to let it heal fully. With that being said, the Argentine striker was considering doubtful for the week early on so we can guess that he's probably close to a return. With Aguero out, Edin Dzeko is set to make another start. Consider how poorly Arsenal have played in the last few weeks, Dzeko is a solid fantasy choice but his price a bit too high if you don't already have him.
Mar 28 - 12:44 PM

Edin Dzeko struck twice as Manchester City dominated rivals Manchester United to move second in the Premier League.

The match ended 3-0 to City in one of the most one sided Manchester derbies in recent history. Dzeko opened the scoring just 43 seconds in to the match after Samir Nasri had hit the post, before the Bosnian forward added a second goal with a cool finish from a Nasri corner. Yaya Toure put a gloss on the scoreline in the dying minutes and it was no less than Manuel Pellegrini's men deserved. Manchester United were awful, offering very little in front of the Old Trafford faithful, and the pressure is back on David Moyes. City move within three points of Chelsea.

Vincent Kompany will return from suspension to bolster Manchester City's back-line in the Old Trafford showdown on Tuesday.

Kompany sat out City's 5-0 win over Fulham after his sending-off in the previous week's win at Hull but will return to partner Martin Demichelis tonight. Sergio Aguero and Matija Nastasic remain out due to injury, but aside from that Manuel Pellegrini has a full strength squad to choose from.

Yaya Toure scored his first ever Premier League hat-trick on the way to a 5-0 win over Fulham.

Manchester City dominated the game from start to finish but really pulled away in the second half. Toure scored twice from the penalty spot and once from open play to get them ahead 3-0. Fernandinho and Martin Demichelis added two more goals to make a bad day worse for Fulham. Manchester City are six points behind Chelsea but have three games less and are currently the favorites to win the title. They face Manchester United, Arsenal, Southampton, and Liverpool in their next four games and if they can come out with three wins, they will be in prime position to challenge for the title.

Manchester City's top scorer Sergio Aguero will miss this weekend's match with Fulham and Tuesday's Manchester derby with a hamstring injury.

As well as missing Aguero for both games of the double week, Vincent Kompany will serve a one-match ban against Fulham following his red card at Hull last weekend. Joleon Lescott will come in to partner Martin Demichelis at the heart of defence against Fulham, while Stevan Jovetic returns to the squad after injury. Matija Nastasic reamins out with a knee injury and Micah Richards is doubtful.
