Man City hopeful of being fit for Wigan clash

The 23-year-old was forced to withdram from the England squad to face Bulgaria and Wales due to a hamstring problem.

“I felt a bit of tightness in the hamstring and it is not something I want to take any chances with,” he told City’s official website.

“I missed some games last season with a similar problem and thought it best to be as cautious as possible.

“I have had the injury looked at and I am confident I will be available for the Wigan game at the weekend.

“No-one wants to miss a minute of the season after the start we have had. It is only three games and we are not getting carried away.

“Our feet are firmly on the ground but we want to keep going. We have played some magical stuff so far.”
