Manchester City could be without midfield dynamo Yaya Toure for Saturday’s crunch game at Norwich City as Roberto Mancini’s side try to increase the pressure on Manchester United.
The powerful Ivory Coast international picked up a knee injury in last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Arsenal and was forced to sit out Wednesday’s emphatic 4-0 home win over West Bromwich Albion.
The former Barcelona man will be assessed by the club’s medical staff to see whether he is fit enough to take part in the Carrow Road clash.
If Toure fails to make it, striker Carlos Tevez, 9/2 with bookmaker to open the scoring against the Canaries, could start.
If the Blues can win at Norwich, they will narrow the gap at the top to just two points, with leaders Manchester United playing 24 hours later against Aston Villa.
City are now 9/2 to clinch the Premier League title.
