Man City v Chelsea preview

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has a number of injury concerns to contend with ahead of their FA Cup showdown with Chelsea.

Pellegrini confirmed on Friday that Javi Garcia (muscle strain) and Samir Nasri (knee) have recovered in time to feature.

A clash with Premier League leaders Chelsea almost certainly comes a week too soon for midfielder Fernandinho and striker Sergio Aguero.

Talismanic midfielder Yaya Toure is available after escaping retrospective punishment following an off-the-ball incident involving Norwich's van Ricky Wolfswinkel in the top flight last weekend.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will be without the centre-back partnership of Gary Cahill and John Terry when they travel to the Etihad Stadium.

Cahill is waiting to discover how long he faces on the sidelines, having sustained a calf injury, while Terry could return next weekend following a muscular strain.

Dutch midfielder Marco van Ginkel remains out and is not expected to be back in contention until April after suffering a cruciate ligament injury.
