Milner (knee) came on in the 56th minute of Manchester City's 3-2 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Milner has dealt with knee soreness for much of 2015 and was even held out of last weekend's match against West Ham. Given that City continue to fight for a Champions League spot, he may have to continue fighting through the ailment, especially with Yaya Toure now battling a hamstring issue.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Friday that Milner (knee) is fit to face Aston Villa on Saturday.

Milner has battled knee issues for much of 2015, missing games here and there, including last weekend's tie with West Ham. With Samir Nasri out because of a muscular injury, Milner could slot right back into the starting XI.

Milner (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's match against West Ham.

Milner has been dealing with a knee issue for a number of weeks, and while he has been able to play through it, manager Manuel Pellegrini simply stated Friday that Milner is unfit to play. Samir Nasri and Jesus Navas could occupy the wings Sunday in place of Milner.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini said Thursday that he has no injury issues ahead of Monday's match against Crystal Palace, indicating that Milner has recovered from his knee injury.

Milner did not travel to Turin for England's international friendly against Italy due to the issue, though it was never considered serious. However, even a full return to fitness doesn't guarantee a start against Palace, even with Samir Nasri seemingly in the doghouse.

Milner will not travel to Turin for Tuesday's international friendly against Italy because of a knee issue, the Daily Mirror reports.

Milner has been dealing with a knee problem for the past few weeks, so it's not entirely surprising he will sit out the friendly. He will use the time off to recover and hope to be ready April 6 to face Crystal Palace.

Milner (knee) is available off the bench for Saturday's match against West Brom.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini said during his Friday press conference that he didn't think Milner would be fit for the match, so while he apparently is well enough to be on the bench, it's tough to expect much playing time given the issue.

Milner will not play Saturday against West Brom due to a knee injury, manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday. "Milner has played with a problem in his knee for the last month, so I don't think (he) will make it," Pellegrini said.

Milner moves in-and-out of the starting XI, so he's tough to depend on for fantasy purposes. His absence will likely open the door for Samir Nasri and Jesus Navas to start out side.
