Manchester City have not won back-to-back Premier League matches since October. With that opportunity looming on Saturday with the Blues traveling to Norwich for the early kickoff, some news has upset the apple cart. City will be without Yaya Toure. Manchester City Manager Manuel Pellegrini addressed the injury today and also stated Toure might not be fit for the UEFA Champions League clash midweek against Dynamo Kiev.

"This week Yaya Toure has a problem in his heel - same as Liverpool. Yaya is out. We'll see how he improves next week. We don't know (about Kyiv) yet.

"It's important to have the players back. I hope that after the international break they will be fit for the rest of the season and that can be very important."

Norwich sits in the Premier League relegation zone and has been in particularly poor form since early January. The Blues currently sit ten points behind Premier League leaders Leicester City in 4th place with a match in hand.
