• City’s shrinking injury list boosts Pellegrini


    STOKE-ON-TRENT, United Kingdom: Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini admits he is delighted to have some of his key players back on duty as the Premier League leaders head to Stoke on Saturday (Sunday in Manila). City’s injury list is gradually clearing up with goalkeeper Joe Hart and striker Sergio Aguero doubtful for the trip to the Britannia Stadium, but in line to play against Borussia Moenchengladbach in the Champions League on Tuesday. And, significantly for City’s hopes of maintaining their position at the top of the Premier League, Spain midfielder David Silva and Ivory Coast forward Wilfried Bony proved they are back to full fitness by helping City thrash Hull to reach the League Cup semi-finals in midweek. Silva started his first game since early October after recovering from an ankle injury, while Bony scored on his first start since the beginning of November following hamstring trouble.
