City striker Carlos Tevez could be named on the bench for the hosts.

The Argentinian has not played since September due to his infamous dispute with the club – but has now been back in training for five weeks.

City have central defensive problems with Joleon Lescott (groin) out and Vincent Kompany (calf) very doubtful but right-back Pablo Zabaleta (hamstring) and midfielder Gareth Barry (back) are fit.

John Terry will miss out for Chelsea as he has been feeling the strain of playing twice in four days following his remarkable recovery from knee surgery.

Caretaker manager Roberto Di Matteo is confident the defender will be fit for Saturday’s game with Tottenham.

Man City (from): Hart, Pantilimon, Richards, Zabaleta, Kompany, Savic, K Toure, Clichy, Kolarov, Johnson, Milner, De Jong, Y Toure, Barry, Pizarro, Nasri, Silva, Aguero, Balotelli, Dzeko, Tevez.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Luiz, Cahill, Cole, Bertrand, Mikel, Essien, Meireles, Ramires, Lampard, Mata, Malouda, Drogba, Torres, Sturridge, Kalou, Turnbull.
