Balotelli: Set to start

Mario Balotelli could start for City in their Group A game with Lech Poznan on Thursday, but Roberto Mancini's side are without Yaya and Kolo Toure.

Balotelli had been struggling with a thigh strain but travelled following a morning training session, whereas the Ivorian brothers both remained in Manchester with slight niggles.

Captain Carlos Tevez is not expected back from his trip to Argentina until tomorrow but may be fit to take on West Brom at the weekend, while Aleksandar Kolarov could make the bench after long-standing ankle trouble.

Man City (from): Hart, Richards, Zabaleta, Bridge, Lescott, Boyata, Jo, De Jong, Vieira, Barry, Johnson, Silva, Adebayor, Balotelli, Kolarov, Given, Milner, Kompany, Boateng.
