Lassana Diarra, Milan Baros and John Utaka all return from injury for Portsmouth’s Premier League trip to Manchester City on Sunday.

Manager Harry Redknapp is likely to recall on-loan Baros as Jermain Defoe’s partner up front, while at the back Glen Johnson is expected to recover in time from a bug that has restricted his training this week.

Redknapp is also looking to rest Niko Kranjcar after a busy spell for the Croatia midfielder.

Team (from): James; Johnson, Campbell, Distin, Hreidarsson, Davis, Diarra, Diop, Muntari, Kranjcar, Baros, Defoe, Kanu, Utaka, Mendes, Lauren, Hughes, Nugent, Aubey, Begovic.
