Manchester City pair David Silva and Eliaquim Mangala will be assessed prior to Tuesday’s Capital One Cup third-round trip to Sunderland.
Playmaker Silva missed Saturday’s loss to West Ham after aggravating a calf problem in the warm-up while defender Mangala was withdrawn at half-time with an unspecified muscle injury.
Midfielder Samir Nasri could come back into contention after a knock but captain Vincent Kompany (calf) has already been ruled out.
Full-backs Pablo Zabaleta (knee) and Gael Clichy (ankle), and midfielder Fabian Delph (hamstring) remain on the sidelines.
Provisional squad: Hart, Caballero, Gunn, Sagna, Otamendi, Mangala, Demichelis, Kolarov, Maffeo, Silva, Nasri, Navas, Sterling, Toure, Fernando, Fernandinho, M Garcia, De Bruyne, Aguero, Bony, Iheanacho, Roberts.
