City have a couple of slight injury concerns ahead of tomorrow's World Series Tournament match in Shanghai.

The Blues take on Kashima Antlers from Japan having beaten Shanghai Shenhua 1-0 on Friday, with Stephen Jordan having stepped in at centre half after Sylvain Distin and Micah Richards reported a groin strain and hip complaint respectively.


The two defenders will continue to have treatment, as will Stephen Ireland, who missed Friday's game with a thigh injury.


Bernardo Corradi picked up a similar injury in the win over Shanghai, and Didi Hamann has a bruised ankle. Both will be assessed over the course of the next day before Stuart Pearce makes his final selection for the Kashima match, which kicks off at 18.15 local time (11.15am UK time).
