Nasri waiting for City call

Midfielder Samir Nasri (hamstring) could return for Manchester City’s Barclays Premier League trip to Norwich and defender Gael Clichy has also recovered from a knock.

Striker Carlos Tevez is available after taking a day off training due to illness and right-back Pablo Zabaleta’s cut head is not a problem, but forward Mario Balotelli (virus) remains a doubt.

Full-backs Aleksandar Kolarov and Maicon (both knee) are still out along with the long-term casualties of defender Micah Richards (knee) and midfielder Jack Rodwell (hamstring).

Provisional squad: Hart, Pantilimon, Wright, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Nastasic, K Toure, Clichy, Rekik, Nasri, Milner, Barry, Y Toure, Garcia, Silva, Sinclair, Aguero, Tevez, Dzeko, Balotelli, Razak.
