Silva poised to return, Balotelli doubtful

England - Manchester City playmaker David Silva should be fit for Monday's Premier League trip to Wigan Athletic but striker Mario Balotelli is a doubt, assistant coach David Platt said on Friday.
Spaniard Silva, who missed the midweek League Cup defeat by Liverpool with an ankle problem, has been inspirational for the league leaders this term and his return would be welcome news as City try to arrest a recent slip in form.
"David did a bit of running yesterday over in Spain, he'll do a little bit more when he gets back, we are hopeful he will be on the training pitch tomorrow," Platt told a news conference.
