Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says key players will not be available for today's away trip to West Ham United.
The Citizens edged closer to the top of the table after Leicester City and Arsenal both dropped both in their last Premier League game.
But they will be without Eliaquim Mangala, Wilfried Bony, Aleksandar Kolarov, Vincent Kompany and Samir Nasri when they take on Slaven Bilic's this afternoon.
"Fernandinho is fit, he's worked with the squad for the last two games," Pellegrini said.
"[Eliaquim] Mangala, [Wilfried] Bony, [Aleksandar] Kolarov, [Vincent] Kompany and [Samir] Nasri are out.
"Vincent is seeing different specialists to try to learn more about his injury. He will start working, I hope, next week, but we will see.
"Bony maybe has an injury which is longer than we supposed. I hope next Monday he will start working with the squad.
"Aleks has a muscle injury in his calf – not very big. I hope at the end of the next week he'll be working with the squad."
