Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy looks certain to miss the next two games against Fulham on Sunday and the UEFA Cup second leg with Hamburg yesterday.
Bellamy suffered a recurrence of a knee injury in the 3-1 defeat by the Bundesliga side last night in the quarter-final first leg and is due to have a scan later today.
Benjani Mwaruwari also looks likely to be sidelined for a spell as he ruptured his thigh muscle.
Shaun Wright-Phillips (ankle) and Vincent Kompany (hamstring) are doubtful through injury but Nigel de Jong is available again after being ineligible for the cup tie.
Team (from): Given, Richards, Onuoha, Dunne, Zabaleta, Wright-Phillips, Elano, Ireland, de Jong, Robinho, Bojinov, Bridge, Garrido, Fernandes, Evans, Etuhu, Vassell, McGivern, Hart, Petrov.
