City short on numbers for Brit trip

Carlos Tevez has been granted leave to return to Argentina for

family reasons and is definitely out, with Craig Bellamy (knee) and

Vincent Kompany (groin) set to join him on the sidelines. In

addition, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Stephen Ireland and Martin Petrov

all suffered knocks against the same opposition at the weekend and

could miss out. Adam Johnson does return after being cup-tied for

the fifth-round tie against the Potters at the weekend. City

(from): Given, Taylor, Richards, Zabaleta, Onuoha, Toure, Lescott,

Boyata, Garrido, Sylvinho, Bridge, Wright-Phillips, Ireland,

Vieira, Barry, De Jong, Petrov, Ibrahim, Adebayor.
