Silva set for City return

Next Story

Manchester City assistant manager David Platt has confirmed he expects David Silva to be fit for Monday's trip to Wigan.

The brilliant Spain midfielder suffered a blow to his ankle in Sunday's FA Cup defeat to Manchester United that ruled him out of the midweek Carling Cup reverse to Liverpool. Silva is currently back in Spain having treatment but after scans revealed there was no major damage, Platt is expecting him to be involved in the Barclays Premier League clash at the DW Stadium.

"David did a bit of running yesterday and will do a bit more today," said Platt. "Hopefully he will be back on the training pitch tomorrow."
