Man City boss Mancini to hand Dedryck Boyata Cup semi start
The Belgian Under-21 defender made a successful debut in the 1-0 FA Cup third-round win at Middlesbrough on Saturday.
With Joleon Lescott and Wayne Bridge injured and Kolo Toure at the African Nations Cup, Boyata is on standby to play in the derby.
Mancini said: “It is possible Boyata will play because of the injuries we have. He did very well at Middlesbrough.”
