Defender Matija Nastasic is facing a three-week lay-off with a calf injury, Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has revealed.

On the positive side, skipper and centre-back Vincent Kompany has recovered from a thigh problem but is not deemed sufficiently match-fit for Sunday's clash with Swansea.

Two other injury victims, David Silva and Stevan Jovetic, are pencilled in to face Bayern Munich on December 10 while midfielder Jack Rodwell has overcome his latest niggle.

Pellegrini said: "Vincent Kompany is fit and he is not ready to play on Sunday but I think next week he will be without any problems.

"Jovetic and Silva - I think they will play against Bayern Munich.

"Nastasic needs more time to recover - I think three weeks more.

"Rodwell is fit and can play this Sunday."
