Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany (groin) and playmaker David Silva (thigh) miss this weekend's Barclays Premier League trip to Stoke.

Left-back Gael Clichy has also been ruled out with a minor knock while fellow defenders Micah Richards (hamstring) and Martin Demichelis (knee) are sidelined.

Striker Stevan Jovetic's involvement for Montenegro during the recent international break was curtailed by a hamstring problem but he is in contention to make his debut.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes has delivered promising news on the availability of a number of his players.

Kenwyne Jones, Glenn Whelan and Jonathan Walters picked up knocks during the recent World Cup qualifiers and international friendlies - but Hughes has confirmed that all three are in contention to feature against his former club.

Deadline-day acquisitions Marko Arnautovic and Stephen Ireland could feature, with Marc Muniesa (groin) the only definite absentee.


Stoke (from): Begovic, Sorensen, Cameron, Huth, Wilson, Shawcross, Wilkinson, Pieters, Whelan, Arnautovic, Ireland, Nzonzi, Assaidi, Adam, Palacios, Shea, Etherington, Pennant, Walters, Jones, Crouch.

Manchester City (from): Hart, Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Nastasic, Lescott, Boyata, Kolarov, Milner, Nasri, Navas, Fernandinho, Toure, Rodwell, Garcia, Dzeko, Aguero, Jovetic, Negredo.
