The Spaniard damaged his hamstring against France on Tuesday. "David has a hamstring problem and is not ready for tomorrow," coach Roberto Mancini said. "We hope that he will be ready for the next Premier League game against Swansea."

Sixth-placed West Brom hope Romelu Lukaku will be fit to face City despite hurting his ankle while on international duty with Belgium this week. However Youssouf Mulumbu is a doubt after picking up an injury while playing for DR Congo in an African Nations Cup qualifier.
