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.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said Monday that Milner (knee) is 100 percent fit to face Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Milner missed Saturday's 5-0 rout of Newcastle because of the injury, but with his return to fitness, he could slot right back into the starting XI in the attacking midfield alongside David Silva and Samir Nasri.

Milner has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Newcastle after picking up a knee injury during training.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini noted that the injury is not serious, and Milner could be available as soon as Tuesday's Champions League match against Barcelona. Samir Nasri could get the start in Milner's absence.

Milner came on as a second-half sub and scored off a free kick two minutes into stoppage time to steal a point during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Hull City.

Milner's goal was his only shot of the game after coming on in the 65th minute for Edin Dzeko, though he did add nine crosses. The goal was his first in Premier League play this season and his excellent free-kick goal may open up further opportunities this season.
