David Silva misses Dortmund trip; doubtful for the Manchester derby

City's playmaker is ruled out of the final Champions League fixture with a hamstring injury.

Not good news from today's press conference:

City are of course already without the suspended Yaya Toure, whilst Aleksandar Kolarov joins fellow full-bakcs Gael Clichy and Micah Richards on the injury list.

Jack Rodwell returns to training however and James Milner also takes his place in the squad.

Although Roberto Mancini conceded the difficulties that Europa League participation will bring, he is fully aware of the need to win in Germany tomorrow evening to ensure City salvage as much as they can by way of the UEFA coefficient heading into next season.
