City are again without suspended striker Mario Balotelli.

Defender Kolo Toure and midfielder Yaya Toure are still at the African Nations Cup but playmaker David Pizarro, signed on loan from Roma this week, is in contention.

Defenders Vincent Kompany and Micah Richards are expected to overcome minor knocks.

Moussa Dembele and Mark Schwarzer return for the Cottagers.

The former has missed recent matches with a hip problem but is fit to return, while goalkeeper Schwarzer has recovered from a spine injury picked up in mid-December.

Andrew Johnson (groin) and Steve Sidwell (hernia) both miss out, while Pavel Pogrebnyak will not feature as he awaits international clearance.

The match is being screened live in the UK by ESPN, and forms part of the channel’s Free Weekend (Sky channel 417, or channel 34 on other platforms). Coverage starts at 4.30pm.
