Reigning champions Man City play host to Southampton this afternoon on the opening weekend of the 2012-13 Premier League season.
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is without defender Micah Richards (ankle), who is likely to be sidelined for several weeks.
Mancini also has doubts over goalkeeper Joe Hart (back) and striker Mario Balotelli (conjunctivitis).
New signing Jack Rodwell (hamstring) will also be assessed ahead of kick-off, but fellow midfielder Gareth Barry (abdominal) definitely misses out.
Newly-promoted Southampton travel to the Etihad Stadium with doubts over midfielder Jack Cork (ankle).
Summer signings Nathaniel Clyne, Steven Davis and Jay Rodriguez are all in contention.
