He was keen to get the ball and scored what should have been the winner.[LNB]"But he got a bang on the knee and was unable to finish. It's been sore for a while now. Hopefully it won't be too serious, a bang and not a twist."[LNB]City captain Kolo Toure is also a doubt for the game at the City of Manchester Stadium with a heel injury, while striker Roque Santa Cruz is suffering from tonsillitis.[LNB]
