City boss Hughes confirmed: "Shaun is still feeling a bit of discomfort and is likely to miss out."
Micah Richards is still feeling some discomfort in the knee injury that forced him to limp off at Goodison. Hughes said: "He probably won't train, we'll keep him indoors today but we're hopeful he might be available."
And so the Elano/SWP selection crunch is postponed by another week. At which point we're playing United away, and so any decision on personnel can be put within the context of a new system for a difficult game.
Right back is a bit more of a concern. If Richards doesn't make it we could well see Shaleum Logan again.
