City trio in contention for City clash
Manchester City trio Joleon Lescott, Maicon and David Silva are hoping to return to action in Sunday’s Barclays Premier League game against Tottenham.
Defenders Lescott (back) and Maicon (foot) – the Brazilian was an unused substitute in midweek – and playmaker Silva (hamstring) are all back in training after spells on the sidelines.
Right-back Micah Richards (knee) and midfielders James Milner and Jack Rodwell (both hamstring) remain on the injury list.
Provisional squad: Hart, Pantilimon, Wright, Zabaleta, Maicon, Kompany, Lescott, Nastasic, K Toure, Clichy, Kolarov, Nasri, Y Toure, Barry, Garcia, Sinclair, Silva, Aguero, Dzeko, Balotelli, Tevez.
