Our guide to three injured players according to our infographic:

Vincent Kompany, calf

Having suffered another calf injury against Dynamo Kiev, the Man City captain was expected to be absent for around a month, avoiding a longer lay-off with a more severe problem. There is talk of Kompany returning in time for his sideֳ Champions League quarter final second leg against PSG next week, which would mean his rehabilitation has gone according to plan.

Santi Cazorla, Achilles tendinopathy

Out since November, initially with a knee problem, Cazorla has now suffered a setback in his foot with Achilles tendinopathy (also known as Achilles tendonitis). As even a minor form of this issue often takes six weeks to recover from, and the Spaniard was reported to be struggling with it as recently as the beginning of March, itֳ likely he wonִ be available this week or next, but may˲eturn before the end of the season.

Connor Wickham, thigh

After netting four goals in four days against West Brom and Sunderland, 22-year-old Wickham was hit with a thigh problem during the final stages of Crystal Palaceֳ draw with the Black Cats on March 1st. After missing around five weeks so far with what appears to be a moderate issue, heֳ expected back this weekend.
