Man City v Everton preview

Captain Vincent Kompany (hamstring) and playmaker David Silva (knee) remain on the sidelines while striker Stevan Jovetic is rested as a precaution after suffering a knock in the midweek win at Sunderland.

There are no concerns about midfielder Yaya Toure although he missed training on Friday due to a sore throat.

Everton are set to have defender Antolin Alcaraz back available for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash.

Alcaraz is poised to return to action after missing six games in all competitions due to a shoulder problem.

Toffees boss Roberto Martinez does not expect Steven Naismith, James McCarthy (both hamstring) or Darron Gibson (knee) to be ready to make their comebacks this weekend, but Arouna Kone and Bryan Oviedo may feature as their return to fitness continues.
