Manuel Pellegrini: Injury update on David Silva, Vincent Kompany, Wilfried Bony and Samir Nasri


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says attacking midfielder David Silva is back to full fitness but not ready to play two games in four days.

The Spaniard did not feature in City's 3-0 away win at Norwich City in the FA Cup but is expected to face either Everton tonight or Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Defenders Vincent Kompany and Eliaquim Mangala are still out.

"It was good to rest both of them [David Silva and Yaya Toure] as they're in the squad list for tomorrow – we'll see who will be in the XI but we have to play two games so close together so we'll see," Pellegrini explained.

"Silva is 100% fit – maybe it's a risk for him to play Wednesday to Saturday.

"Kompany, Mangala, Fernandinho, Nasri and Bony – those five players are injured and not fit for tomorrow's game.

"Mangala tried to work yesterday with normality but he couldn't. He had some pain still in his muscle – for him, it's best to wait a bit more. It's the same for Fernandinho and Bony. For Kompany and Nasri, it's longer.

"Vincent tried a lot of different things to try and find the cause of the injury so we have no update at this time."
