David Silva may miss League Cup final

David Silva is facing a battle to be fit for Manchester City’s Capital One Cup final match with Liverpool.

City boss Manuel Pellegrini revealed the Spain international has been playing through the pain barrier in recent weeks.

The Spaniard limped off during the closing stages of Saturday’s 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Leicester City with a recurrence of an ankle complaint.

The 30-year-old may also miss the FA Cup encounter away at Chelsea and the Champions League tie versus Dynamo Kiev.
