Form (Premier League)
Manuel Pellegrini: "It’s important to have the players back. I hope that after the international break they will be fit for the rest of the season.
"I always say when you must play a side that are fighting relegation it’s difficult, because they don’t have too much to lose.
"For our team we must win if we want to be involved in the title. If we can qualify for the Champions League quarter finals that’s another achievement."
Jesus Navas: “There is no difference in the way we approach cup games – it’s just been a struggle to score in Premier League games away from home this season but as I say, we will prepare well and work hard and hope the goals will start to come.”
Norwich manager Alex Neil: "There's no reason why we can't get a result tomorrow. We've done it before and we've always been in games.
"We've played well against the top teams so far this season - it's not out of our capabilities to get a result."
Out (City): De Bruyne, Delph, Nasri, Toure
Out (Norwich): Bassong, Wisdom, Tettey
