Manchester City travel to Wigan Athletic on Monday evening without a number of key squad members.

Manchester City travel to Wigan Athletic on Monday evening requiring at least a point to allow them to regain the outright lead in the Premier League table.

They will have to do without the services of Yaya and Kolo Toure, who are currently away at the African Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast, while skipper Vincent Kompany is suspended.

City boss Roberto Mancini also has injury doubts over David Silva and Mario Balotelli.

Wigan also have a player currently on duty with an African nation, as Mohamed Diame recently linked up with the Senegal squad.

Apart from Diame's absence, Roberto Martinez has a fully fit squad to choose from at the DW Stadium.

Current form:

Wigan: WDDLDL
Man City: WDLWLL

Possible lineups:

Wigan: Al-Habsi; Stam, Caldwell, Boyce, Figueroa; Moses, Watson, Jones, Crusat; Gomez, Rodallega.

Man City: Hart; Zabaleta, Richards, Lescott, Clichy; Barry, De Jong, Nasri; Johnson, Aguero, Dzeko.

Sports Mole says: 1-2
