MANCHESTER, England (AP):

Manchester City's injury problems ahead of their Champions League quarter-final match against Paris Saint-Germain have intensified, with Yaya Toure and Joe Hart set to become the latest big names to be sidelined for the first leg.

City manager Manuel Pellegrini, who is already missing captain Vincent Kompany and winger Raheem Sterling for Wednesday's game in Paris, said yesterday that Hart and Toure were unlikely to be fit.

City have reached the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time, making the two legs against PSG among the biggest games in the club's history.

Pellegrini had some better news on the injury front as record signing Kevin De Bruyne is available after two months out with knee and ankle injuries, and could start against Bournemouth in the Premier League today.
