Edin Dzeko returns for Manchester City's clash with Everton

Manuel Pellegrini gave an injury update ahead of the Champions' clash with Everton at the Etihad Stadium tomorrow evening.

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has returned to the squad for this weekend's game with Everton at the Etihad Stadium, but it's not all good news on the injury front for Manuel Pellegrini.

Striker Stevan Jovetic, who has formed an effective partnership alongside the in-form Sergio Aguero in recent games is out of the clash, with David Silva still sidelined with an ankle injury. 

Aleksandar Kolorov is fit enough to return to the side having been sidelined for the past few weeks.

Captain Vincent Kompany also misses the game against Everton with a hamstring injury sustained in last weekend's win over Southampton, and will face a fitness test ahead of their crucial Champions League game against Roma.

Pellegrini told reporters: "We have a last test with him on Monday to decide. It is possible he could travel to Rome."

The City boss also stated Silva could play some part in the game against last season's Serie A runners-up on Wednesday.

There were reports that Yaya Toure didn't train this week but Pellegrini has said it was precaution.

He added: "He didn’t work today as a precaution but he is in the squad list."

City seem to be coming into some good form at the moment. The have recently dug out a win against Swansea City, come from behind to beat Bayern Munich, and enjoyed comprehensive victories away from home at Southampton and Sunderland.

It seems to be pleasing the City boss ahead of a big week where they look to keep the pressure on Chelsea in the title race, and qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

"We're returning to our normal performance. Important players are playing well and that means the team play well."
