Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is poised to return to action in his side's FA Cup third-round replay against Blackburn.
Aguero, who has scored 19 goals this season, has missed eight games after suffering a calf injury in the 6-3 thrashing of Arsenal on December 14.
City boss Manuel Pellegrini has not yet decided if Aguero will feature as Blackburn visit the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, but the Argentinian is in contention.
Pellegrini said: "Sergio is working with normality with the whole squad and he is on the squad list for tomorrow.
"He is a very important player for us. It doesn't matter if we are scoring a lot of goals, Sergio will always be a very important player and we are happy he is coming back."
