Who could be in the City squad?
David Silva will sit out the trip to Chelsea to further rest an ankle problem.
The Spaniard also missed last week’s victory over West Brom as a precaution against an injury that he has been playing with for some time.
Captain Vincent Kompany (calf) is pushing to return for Tuesday’s game at Newcastle while forward Raheem Sterling (groin) could also be back in contention after missing the last four games.
Provisional squad: Hart, Caballero, Sagna, Zabaleta, Otamendi, Mangala, Demichelis, Kolarov, Clichy, Toure, Fernando, Fernandinho, Delph, De Bruyne, Navas, Nasri, M Garcia, Aguero, Bony, Iheanacho.
Manuel Pellegrini on Kevin de Bruyne’s return to Chelsea: “I think Kevin is a very professional player that tries to play very well in every game and tries to be at the top of the table in every competition with Manchester City. I think that is his only feelings.
“He is a very young player. It depends how he improves in the next year but he is a player that kicks the ball very well and he gets goals, and for me, a player that gets goals is the most important thing.
“I think we will see Kevin improve in every season here in the next few years in England.”
