Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri could make his return from injury after being named in the squad for Wednesday night's match against Newcastle.

The Frenchman has been out for a month after undergoing groin surgery.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini said he was now "working normally" and was in contention for the League Cup tie.

However, midfielder Frank Lampard will miss the match and is a doubt for Sunday's Manchester derby with a thigh injury.

Pellegrini said Lampard could return to face CSKA Moscow in the Champions League next Wednesday.
