Manager Manuel Pellegrini gave the following injury update:
So MCFC is unlikely to play a 4-4-2 in this match with Bony injured and the need for three points.
"It was good to rest both (David Silva and Yaya Toure) of them as they're in the squad list for tomorrow - we'll see who will be in the XI but we have to play two games so close together so we'll see," Manuel declared.
"Silva is 100% fit - maybe it's a risk for him to play Wednesday to Saturday.
"Kompany, Mangala, Fernandinho, Nasri and Bony - those five players are injured and not fit for tomorrow's game.
"Mangala tried to work yesterday with normality but he couldn't. He had some pain still in his muscle - for him, it's best to wait a bit more. It's the same for Fernandinho and Bony. For Kompany and Nasri, it's longer.
"Vincent tried a lot of different things to try and find the cause of the injury so we have no update at this time."
