Yaya Toure will return to the Manchester City line-up for Saturday's trip to Southampton.

Yaya Toure returns for City

Toure, and brother Kolo, are back at City earlier than expected after Ivory Coast failed to get past the last eight of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Skipper Vincent Kompany (calf) could also make his comeback as the Blues look to end a run of two successive draws.

Southampton left-back Luke Shaw is a doubt.

The 17-year-old picked up a ligament issue ahead of his England Under-21s debut against Sweden in midweek, while fellow full-back Nathaniel Clyne, another to drop out of the Young Lions' squad, may also be unavailable.

Gaston Ramirez and Guly do Prado are also possibly out, while Jose Fonte is sidelined. Adam Lallana could make his first start since suffering a knee injury on December 8 and January acquisition Vegard Forren could make his debut.


Southampton (from) K Davis, Gazzaniga, Boruc, Clyne, Richardson, Stephens, Fox, Shaw, Yoshida, Forren, Hooiveld, Ward-Prowse, Cork, Chaplow, Ramirez, Schneiderlin, S Davis, Lallana, do Prado, Puncheon, Lee, Lambert, Rodriguez.
