Man City boss Hughes to take UEFA Cup gamble
Manchester City boss Mark Hughes is likely to field a weakened line-up for their UEFA Cup qualifier against Faroe Islands champs EB Streymur.
And Sparky could risk a gamble by leaving them behind so they can concentrate on fitness work.
City No2 Mark Bowen said: "We have touched on the subject of whether or not they will play but won't come to a conclusion until we see how they are when they get back.
"We don't want to be risking players not ready to play."
