Jesus Navas, Wilfried Bony and Eliaquim Mangala are all available for selection for Sunday's League Cup Final at Wembley against Liverpool according to Manager Manuel Pellegrini. Full quotes from Pellegrini's Friday press conference are below.

"Sagna, Kompany and Sterling are recovering separately after the game but I hope the three of them will be fit.

"Mangala, Navas and Bony are training normally and are available for selection.

"For everyone, Wembley is one of the most important stadiums in the world. To play a final there creates a different atmosphere.

"It's a special thing. That's why I respect every cup so much."

"It's a very important week - as you said, we won the first leg but it's not finished even though that was an important result playing away and now we hope to qualify at home," Pellegrini declared.

"To play a big final at Wembley against Liverpool is very important too. It's my mentality to try to win all the time.

"To win in February one title that gives you a lot of trust to continue fighting for other competitions.

"We are six points behind the leaders in the Premier League and we will continue to fight to the end - this could give us a lot of trust if we are successful on Sunday.
