Hughes hopeful Robinho will return from injury

Manchester City manager Mark Hughes is quietly confident Robinho will recover in time to face Everton at Eastlands on Saturday.

The former Real Madrid striker has missed the last two matches because of an ankle problem.

However, Robinho appears to be on the mend with Hughes saying: "Hopefully he will train tomorrow and the situation can be resolved in the next 24 hours.

"He has not trained with the group all week and we will keep him back one more day. The injury has compromised Robinho because he plays in such an explosive way.''

Defender Nedum Onuoha could come into contention following a six-week absence with a leg muscle injury.

Onuoha came through a reserves game in midweek unscathed and Hughes added: "I felt it was important to give Nedum a game.

"He has missed a chunk of training and not had that many games. He got a good hour for the reserves and looked fine. That will help him. He is a good young player who gives me options as he can play in a couple of positions.''

Micah Richards (ankle) and Javier Garrido (Achilles) are both doubtful for the game against Everton while Daniel Sturridge has a virus.

Hughes believes City can take positives from the draw at Fulham last weekend.

He said: "We have shown we can score goals but defensively we have not been as strong.

"We have tried to tighten up in that area and I was pleased with the manner of the performance at Fulham. It was a decent point.''
