Manchester City's David Silva will miss Wednesday's Champions League semi-final second leg at Real Madrid after it was confirmed that he faces two to three weeks out with a hamstring injury.

The attacking midfielder picked up the problem in the first leg of City's last-four tie with Los Blancos.

Spain international Silva would be fit for the Champions League final if the Sky Blues were to get there, according to manager Manuel Pellegrini.

Meanwhile, Friday also brought good news for Pellegrini, whose side take on Southampton in the Premier League this weekend.

Ivorian Yaya Touré, who sat out the opening leg against Real at the Etihad Stadium, has returned to training and is in with a chance of making the return in Madrid.
