Hart, Delph train but no Yaya ahead of PSG

Joe Hart and Fabian Delph trained for City ahead of the Champions League quarter-final first leg clash at Paris St Germain, but there was no sign of Yaya Toure at City Football Academy.

Hart (calf) has been out since injuring himself in the derby, while Delph (Achilles) last featured in the defeat to Leicester in early February.

Toure's last game was also the derby but he continues to be troubled by a heel injury.

Kevin De Bruyne – star of Saturday’s win over Bournemouth – was out with the squad and will be hoping to pick up where he left off at the Vitality Stadium.

Boss Manuel Pellegrini will confirm the team news at this evening’s press conference in Paris ahead of the game.


Both sides head into the match in good form, City having beaten Bournemouth 4-0, almost matched by Ligue 1 champions PSG’s 4-1 win over Nice.
