Manuel Pellegrini gives Joe Hart and Yaya Toure injury update ahead of Paris Saint-Germain game


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says goalkeeper Joe Hart will start against Paris Saint-Germain tomorrow.

The Englishman was forced to sit out last weekend's game away at Bournemouth but will be in the squad to face the French giants.

Midfielder Yaya Toure is however out with a knee injury.

"[Joe] Hart has worked without any problem in the last day," Pellegrini told reporters.

"He has had medical and physical tests and has no problems to play.

"Yaya [Toure] has a problem with his knee so he is not able to play.

"Both teams have options to continue to the next stage - the options are 50% for each team.

"It's important for the club, the fans, the players. Last season we couldn't continue as we faced a strong team like Barcelona. Now we've improved this season - we've topped our group for the first time and qualified from the last 16 for the first time.

"We know it's a difficult game we face tomorrow but we believe we have a chance to continue.

"We are not coming to Paris to draw 0-0. We'll play our usual way."
