The midfielder was forced to withdraw from the Republic of Ireland squad for next week's friendly international with Wales in Cardiff.

Pilkington is also doubtful for the opening Premier League fixture against Everton on 17 August but Hughton is keen for him to return to action soon.

"We are just managing a slight problem with his knee at this moment in time," said Hughton.

"Anthony did the first part of pre-season and he did very well but when it came round to these most recent period of games we have not been able to use him.

"We are hopeful that he is going to be training next week and to push on from there."

City centre-back Sebastien Bassong is also an injury concern, having missed the whole of pre-season following an operation on his knee.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
