David Silva: Set to return from injury

David Silva: Set to return from injury

The Spain midfielder has not featured for a month, after picking up a groin problem whilst on international duty.

City have found their stride in recent weeks under new boss Manuel Pellegrini and the Chilean is now set to be able to call on Silva again, although he admits he is unlikely to use him for this weekend's Premier League clash at Aston Villa.

"We will see the next day what happens with David ," said Pellegrini.

"The doctor can say better than me what will happen. I don't think he can play on Saturday but maybe for the next game of the Champions League, I think he could be fit."

City host the European champions next Wednesday at the Etihad Stadium, having opened their Group D challenge with a 3-0 win away to Viktoria Plzen on September 17.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
