David Silva vs Leicester City
Once again Man City fans are heading into another Premier League weekend with doubts over David Silva.
The Sky Blues take on Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium in the late fixture on Saturday.
Silva, of course, has been in and out of the Man City team this season. The Spanish star has been dealing with family problems relating to the birth of his son.
But updates this week have suggested that Silva may miss the Leicester game with a knock.
Indeed, the midfield maestro has missed training in the build up to the Foxes game.
John Stones and Phil Foden updates
In sunnier news for Man City fans, John Stones and Phil Foden are closing in on first team returns.
David Silva have not trained today because he is not fully recovered. Stones and Phil Foden have trained with the rest of the team.

Will that happen on Saturday? Maybe, as both the English centre-half and midfielder have been involved in first team training this week.
17-year-old Foden has been missing since he was the victim of a bad tackle against Leicester in December’s Carabao Cup tie, while Stones has missed recent games through illness then a mystery knee injury.
Mahrez, Okazaki & Morgan
Claude Puel has confirmed that three stars will miss the Man City game: Riyad Mahrez, Shinji Okazaki and Wes Morgan.
Mahrez’s absence had been expected after the Algerian failed to turn up to training all week.
Amid claims that the PFA may be called in to mediate the situation, Mahrez returned to action for Leicester since his January move to Man City never came to fruition.
Okazaki’s absence is another blow for the Foxes. The Japanese striker is now sidelined for a fortnight with a knee injury.
Also sidelined is defender Wes Morgan. The centre-half is out with a hamstring problem.
