City's Fernandinho ruled out against Norwich

Manchester City are again without key midfielder Fernandinho (muscle strain) for their Barclays Premier League trip to Norwich.


The Brazilian has joined top scorer Sergio Aguero (hamstring) and playmaker Samir Nasri (knee) on the sidelines and all three could be at least a fortnight away from fitness.

Midfielder Javi Garcia (muscle strain) is another absentee this weekend, but James Milner (groin) is fit again, while striker Edin Dzeko (ankle) and defender Joleon Lescott (ankle) have overcome minor knocks.

Provisional squad: Hart, Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Richards, Kompany, Nastasic, Demichelis, Lescott, Boyata, Kolarov, Clichy, Navas, Milner, Silva, Toure, Rodwell, Negredo, Jovetic, Dzeko.
