According to an update by Manchester Evening News journalist Simon Bajkowski, Liam Delap has been back training with the first team and is in contention to face Sheffield United on Saturday.
Delap, who has emerged as a promising young attacking talent at the Etihad Stadium, was left out of the matchday squad to face West Ham last weekend – instead scoring a wondergoal for the Elite Development Squad in their 4-1 home thrashing of Arsenal.
The youngster last appeared for the senior team during a 2-1 win Carabao Cup win over Bournemouth last month, with Delap firing a wonderful finish over the helpless Mark Travers.
Indeed, the 6 foot 1 ace helped City to the next round but hasn’t started another match since, prompting many supporters to react to the news he could be back in contention this weekend.

Fans flock to Delap team news
Baldy won’t start him
Don’t give me hope
Sterling would score a goal as a false nine and he would start him for the rest of eternity.
