Manuel Pellegrini gives injury update ahead of Bournemouth and Paris Saint-Germain


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that midfielder Yaya Toure will not recover in time to face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

The Citizens will be without a number of key players for today's away game at Bournemouth with the Ivorian as well as goalkeeper Joe Hart and defender Vincent Kompany also set to miss Wednesday's European game against the French giants.

"[Yaya] Toure has some trouble in his knee," Pellegrini said.

"He has been playing with a pain in his knee for the last month. I'm not 100 per cent sure but I think it will be difficult for Joe [Hart], Vincent [Kompany] or Yaya to play against PSG.

"[Raheem] Sterling has a [groin] muscle injury and will be out for four or five weeks more and [Fabian] Delph is not fit yet.

"It is two months since he played but Kevin [De Bruyne] has worked the whole week without any problem, the same with Samir Nasri.

"So I hope both of them will be important for the last part of the season.

"Nasri has had very long and unexpected injury. Six months is a long time without playing but now he has the last part of the season to show what an important player he is.

"At the end of the season when you've had so many players playing a lot of games during the whole season it's important to have fresh players.

"They are in the squad list because they are ready to play. Maybe not 90 minutes but they can play."
