Manuel Pellegrini: Injury update on Yaya Toure, Kevin De Bruyne and Samir Nasri


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has revealed that midfielder Yaya Toure will not feature in today's away game against Norwich City.

The 32-year-old will be assessed on Monday ahead of the Champions League game at home against Dynamo Kiev.

Samir Nasri, Fabian Delph and Kevin De Bruyne are all expected to be back after this month's international break.

"The same three players - Nasri, Delph and De Bruyne are out and expected back after the internationals," Pellegrini said.

"This week Yaya Toure has a problem in his heel - same as Liverpool. Yaya is out. We'll see how he improves next week. We don't know [about Dynamo Kiev] yet

"It's important to have the players back. I hope that after the international break they will be fit for the rest of the season and that can be very important.

"We don't just depend on what we can do.

"It's important because Tottenham, Leicester; we cannot have the same points as them if they win all their games.

"If that happens we must make sure it's because they won theirs not because of us not winning.

"It depends how the pressure is managed. We don't have the margin of error and we need to win our games.

"We have played well in three of our last four games and that is what we must focus on."
