Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure will be available for Manchester City’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says the Ivorian returned to full training on Thursday and may yet feature in City's Premier League clash with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday evening.
The has not played for City since the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United on 20 March, and missed Wednesday's 2-2 Champions League first leg draw with PSG at the Parc des Princes.
"Yaya started working yesterday working with the squad – he’s recovered from his knee injury," the Chilean said.
"He’s in the squad list and we’ll see tomorrow whether he’ll start or play some minutes."
David Silva will miss the Etihad Stadium clash with Tony Pulis' side with an ankle injury, and is a doubt for Tuesday’s second leg against the French champions, but the City manager downplayed suggestions the Spanish playmaker may need an operation to alleviate the chronic condition.
"On the squad list, not involved is David Silva – he has a problem with his ankle," Pellegrini continued.
"No, I don’t think surgery. It’s a kick he received with his national team that unfortunately for him he cannot recover 100% but he plays with some pain, not too much," he continued.
"But to [play] repeat games for him is more difficult. At the end of the season he will recover 100 % but we will see with the treatment.”
Raheem Sterling and Vincent Kompany are also sidelined, with the Manchester City captain continuing his rehabilitation from a knee injury.
"Vincent is improving in every work. He’s not working with the squad for the moment so we’ll see next week how many days more," he continued.
"Raheem has a groin muscle problem – he’s starting running again but he needs a couple of weeks more."
