Brazilian striker Jo rushed back into Man City action

City boss Mark Hughes is worried though about what Jo's fitness might be like but admits he will have few other options after losing a number of forwards to injury.

"I understand Jo will be ready to train on Monday, so he will go to Denmark," Hughes confirmed.

"We have lost him for quite some time now and he has not had a great deal of football recently either, which is a concern for us.

"You do hope that while they are away that they will get good game-time under his belt.

"He has been in competitive games, but going in for 10-15 minutes a time is not the ideal preparation for Premier League games, so it might take a little bit of time to get up to speed.

"But needs must, and I think he will be involved with us very, very quickly.

"He has got the ability and will give us a presence up front which we lacked last weekend."
