Manchester City welcome back the trio of Jack Rodwell, Sergio Aguero, and Samir Nasri for their game agianst Fulham on Saturday.

Sergio Aguero returns after he tore a hamstring in the New Years Day win over Stoke, while Samir Nasri is available again after suspension.

Rodwell hasn’t featured for Roberto Mancini’s men since October due to a hamstring injury, and his return will come as even more of a boost with influential midfielder Yaya Toure away on duty at the African Cup of Nations.

“I am happy because I am sure Jack will be an important player for us in the future, because he is young,” Mancini told Manchester Evening News.

“If we have solved his problem – his hamstring injuries have been often – he will be an important player.

“Tomorrow he will be ready, but probably for 20 minutes, no more.”

The 21-year-old arrived at the Etihad last summer from Everton for £12million and will be eager to kick start his career in Manchester after a difficult start.

The Citizens currently trail rivals Manchester United by seven points in the table but have won six of their last seven league games.

They host Fulham at home tomorrow, and will be keen to pile the presuure on United before the leaders face a tough away trip to Tottenham the following day.
