Jovetic was unable to play in Saturday's match against Leicester City after picking up a muscular injury, and he could miss a number of weeks, according to manager Manuel Pellegrini. "We are without (Edin) Dzeko, (Sergio) Aguero and Jovetic, for more than a couple weeks," Pellegrini said. "We must see how long it takes Jovetic to recover."

Aguero (knee) has already been ruled out for at least four to six weeks, and Dzeko (calf) could be sidelined for a similar time after injuring himself Saturday in pregame warmups. Jovetic appears the closest to a return, but given the total injury issues, it's unlikely he's rushed back before he's fully fit, leaving Yaya Toure and David Silva to be the focus of the Citizens' attack.

Jovetic had a goal and an assist during Manchester City's 4-1 win over Sunderland on Wednesday.

Jovetic now has two goals and two assists in his last four matches in all competitions, as he continues to get starts alongside Sergio Aguero, with Edin Dzeko sidelined with a calf injury.

Jovetic took five shots, with three on goal, including a goal in the 19th minute of Manchester City's 2-1 win over Swansea City on Saturday.

Jovetic has been bothered by injuries this season, but he's still managed to score three times in five starts. With Edin Dzeko still bothered with a calf injury, Jovetic should keep his spot in the starting XI.

Jovetic has been deemed fit following recovery from his hamstring injury and he will be available for Manchester City's Champions League match against Roma on Tuesday.

Jovetic, who scored two goals in the first three Premier League games this season, has not played since suffering a hamstring injury while with Montenegro over the international break. While City have scored just fine without him thanks to Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko, his return is a welcome boost to give the two dominant strikers some rest over the coming weeks.
