Manuel Pellegrini: Injury update on Yaya Toure, Vincent Kompany, David Silva and Raheem Sterling


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says midfielder David Silva will not feature this weekend after picking an ankle injury.

The Spaniard joins Raheem Sterling and Vincent Kompany on the sidelines.

After the mid-week impressive result in Paris, the Citizens host West Bromwich Albion on Saturday as they continue their quest to lift the Premier League trophy.

"For the squad list tomorrow, not involved is David Silva - he has a problem with his ankle. Raheem Sterling and Vincent Kompany are also missing," Pellegrini revealed.

"It's a small problem for Silva - he's playing with this pain for a lot of games and it's too soon for him to repeat another game so soon after the last.

"Vincent [Kompany] is improving in every work. He's not working with the squad for the moment so we'll see next week how many days more.

"Raheem has a groin muscle problem - he's starting running again but he needs a couple of weeks more.

"Yaya [Toure] started working yesterday working with the squad - he's recovered from his knee injury. He's in the squad list and we'll see tomorrow whether he'll start or play some minutes.

"It's a big game against West Brom at home - all the teams around us are playing against each other. Arsenal v West Ham and [Manchester] United v Spurs, so it's more important than ever not to drop points at home.

"I'm sure tomorrow we must need to make good moments in attacking to create the space but also be careful as they have good players on the counter-attack. We must not think just about attack but to defend well too.

"We'll see tomorrow which players have recovered best and which can repeat. Maybe we will make changes to refresh the team but all of the players who are 100% will play."
