Man City v Man Utd preview
Manchester City's David Silva and Micah Richards are both 'unlikely' to return in Sunday's derby against Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium, live on Sky Sports 1.
Playmaker Silva (thigh) and right-back Richards (hamstring) are back in training, but are not expected to be involved, while left-back Gael Clichy is not yet ready to feature.
Captain Vincent Kompany came through his comeback unscathed in midweek but fellow-centre back Martin Demichelis (knee) is a long-term casualty.
David Moyes looks set to plunge Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand into their third match in a week.
The pair have not operated in tandem three times in such quick succession since 2010 but Moyes seems certain to stick with them, having already done so for the victories over Crystal Palace and Bayer Leverkusen.
Rafael (hamstring), Danny Welbeck (knee) and Phil Jones (ankle) all missed the midweek Champions League win, while Nani is available after suspension.
