Manchester City are without goalkeeper Joe Hart (hamstring) for Saturday's visit of Southampton in the Barclays Premier League.
The England number one is likely to be out for around 10 days meaning Willy Caballero will deputise and former England international Richard Wright, 38, will come onto the bench nine years after his last top-flight appearance.
Playmaker David Silva (ankle) is fit after nine games out and striker Wilfried Bony (hamstring) is also available but captain Vincent Kompany (calf),...
In considering Wednesday's 1-0 Champions League defeat away to Juventus, Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said his team were in " a difficult moment."
City's last three performances have fallen well below the standards that might be expected of English football's best resourced club, after spending £153.5m in the summer to add to already opulent resources.
