Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic says their hectic schedule is to blame for their injuries.
Nastasic said: "I'm very happy to be back and it was even better that we won a very hard game [1-0 against Crystal Palace].
"At the moment we have some injuries. I was out for a month but now I'm okay.
"I don't know why we have calf and hamstring injuries - maybe because we play a lot of games, and play every three days.
"In football it can happen, it always depends on who is 100 per cent fit and can play.
"My problem is now behind me, and I feel fit and 100 per cent ready for games and training."
