Manager Manuel Pellegrini said Tuesday that Clichy is fit to face Stoke City on Boxing Day after being held out of last weekend's match against Crystal Palace due to a minor knock, the Independent reports.

Aleksander Kolarov got the start in Clichy's place and picked up an assist, and the two men are expected to continue to fight for starts.

Clichy started and played all 90 minutes Sunday against Newcastle, posting a clean sheet during the 2-0 victory.

Clichy was the only Manchester City defender not to pick up a yellow card, which left him as the highest-scoring producer of the back-four. However, his playing time could be limited, as Pablo Zabaleta is expected to return to the starting XI when he is deemed fit following a long run at the World Cup with Argentina.

Clichy was in the starting XI and played all 90 minutes of Manchester City's 6-3 win over Arsenal on Saturday.

Clichy didn't play in Tuesday's Champions League match against Bayern Munich because of a foot injury, although he was always expected to play against the Gunners. He didn't do much from a fantasy perspective, as Pablo Zabaleta and Martin Demichelis have higher fantasy upsides.

Clichy did not play in Tuesday's Champions League match against Bayern Munich due to a foot injury, but he is expected to be fit for Saturday's Premier League match against Arsenal, the Manchester Evening News reports. Manager Manuel Pellegrini said that he "has a problem with his foot. It's not serious, but he could not travel. I think he will be OK for Saturday."

Clichy has been in-and-out of the City starting XI this season, but has recorded a clean sheet in the last three matches he's started for the Citizens.

Clichy is out for Saturday's match against Stoke after picking up a minor knock while playing for France this week, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Manchester City's defensive players have been ravaged with injuries and Clichy is only making it worse. Aleks Kolarov is expected to play in his place alongside Joleon Lescott, Matija Nastasic and Pablo Zabaleta.

Clichy's long-ranged strike propelled City to a 2-0 win over Bolton on Saturday. The win moves City five points clear of United on top of the Premier League table.

Clichy benefits from having so many playmakers in front of him. It isn't hard to argue that the entire City lineup should be in play when they go up against the bottom teams in the table.
