David Silva suffered a hamstring injury in the closing stages against Manchester United

First-choice goalkeeper Joe Hart is likely to return after making way for deputy Costel Pantilimon in Sunday's semi-final defeat of Chelsea at Wembley.

Midfielder Jack Rodwell (hamstring) and right-backs Micah Richards and Maicon (both knee) are also back in contention with manager Roberto Mancini considering changes after the weekend efforts.
