Manuel Pellegrini: Injury update on Sergio Aguero, Jesus Navas and Joe Hart


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says a number of key players are in the squad to face Stoke City on Saturday.

But striker Sergio Aguero will not be involved as he continues his recovery from a heel injury.

"Joe [Hart] worked yesterday and today without any problems so he's in the squad list - we'll see tomorrow if he can play," Pellegrini said on Friday.

"We'll see on Kun [Aguero], he's recovering from his heel. He's in pain so it's not easy for him to work. I don't think he will be fit – maybe for Tuesday.

"Navas and Fernando are both in the squad and have no problems.

"We don't depend on one or two players. We have an average of six players injured every game but even so we're through to the Last 16 of the Champions League and into the semi-final of the Capital One Cup.

"I think for a manager the best thing is to try and keep the starting 11 when you are winning but it's impossible for the amount of games we're playing. It's also important that it doesn't matter who plays, we have a good performance either way.

"It doesn't matter which names start as we will play the same style."
