Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says all injured players should be back after the November international break.
The Citizens host Norwich City in today's Premier League action with a number of key players still on the sidelines.
They lead the group on 22 points with Arsenal putting pressure after a number of very convincing displays.
"Pablo [Zabaleta] has the same injury in his medial ligament – it's not so bad as the first one he had," Pellegrini said on Friday.
"We soon have the international break so he should be fit after that - in 25 days he will be ready.
"David [Silva] is not in the squad list for the weekend as he still has some pain in his ankle. He's not available. We'll see if he's available for midweek. We have three more days and we'll decide then.
"Sergio [Aguero] is continuing his treatment – it's different to David as it's a muscle injury so he needs the amount of days he needs to be fit.
"Gael [Clichy] and Fabian [Delph] should hopefully be OK next week - I hope after the international break we will have everyone fit."
