Aguero and Nasri back for City
Manchester City forwards Sergio Aguero (hamstring) and Samir Nasri (suspension) are back for this weekend’s Barclays Premier League clash with Fulham at the Etihad Stadium.
Midfielder Jack Rodwell (hamstring), who has been out since October, is in contention for a place on the bench and captain Vincent Kompany is available after having last week’s red card overturned.
Midfielder Yaya Toure, defender Kolo Toure and back-up striker Abdul Razak are at the African Nations Cup with Ivory Coast while full-backs Micah Richards and Maicon (both knee) are still sidelined.
Provisional squad: Hart, Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Kompany, Nastasic, Kolarov, Clichy, Rekik, Milner, Silva, Barry, Garcia, Sinclair, Rodwell, Nasri, Aguero, Tevez, Dzeko, Balotelli.
