Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is in talks with Owen Hargreaves today about a first team debut.

Hargreaves is lined up to make his City debut in Wednesday's Carling Cup tie against holders Birmingham City.

"I need to speak with Owen and on Tuesday we will decide if he will play, but he probably will. He has been in full training but he is not 100 per cent.

"He could play maybe 30 to 45 minutes," said Mancini.
