Manuel Pellegrini: Injury update ahead of Capital One Cup final against Liverpool


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says a number of key players are expected to be fit to face Liverpool this afternoon.

The Citizens have their first opportunity to win a trophy when they face the Reds at Wembley.

And the Chilean says the objective of his side will be to lift silverware for the first time this season.

"Sagna, Kompany and Sterling are recovering separately after the game but I hope the three of them will be fit," Pellegrini said.

"Mangala, Navas and Bony are training normally and are available for selection.

"For everyone, Wembley is one of the most important stadiums in the world. To play a final there creates a different atmosphere.

"It's a special thing. That's why I respect every cup so much.

"To play a big final at Wembley against Liverpool is very important too. It's my mentality to try to win all the time.

"To win in February one title that gives you a lot of trust to continue fighting for other competitions.

"We are six points behind the leaders in the Premier League and we will continue to fight to the end - this could give us a lot of trust if we are successful on Sunday."
