Manchester City will go into tomorrow's top-of-table clash with Leicester City shorthanded. Jesus Navas, who likely would have played a key role in the match (the left side of the Foxes defense is probably the weakest area of that team)has been ruled out for up to three weeks. The rest of the injury news isn't much better. The latest from Manager Manuel Pellegrini.

"Kompany and Mangala both started working partially with the squad - unfortunately Mangala has another injury and he'll be another couple of weeks," Pellegrini revealed.

"I hope after another week, Vincent will be back working with the squad fully.

"We know exactly what happened with the injury to Vincent now. The risk for the future is exactly the same as it is with every player. It's important now for Vincent to start playing again as we have just 14 senior players. That's not so many for so many games.

"Navas has a muscle injury in his hamstring. He'll be out for a minimum of three weeks.

"We didn't expect Bony to be out for so long but I hope next Monday we will see a full medical report. He's improving a lot but it's an inflammation of the bone which is bringing him a lot of pain. We'll see if he can start working with the squad next week."
