Willy Caballero: Outstanding saves in penalty shootout

Willy Caballero will retain his place in goal for Manchester City’s FA Cup third-round tie at Norwich on Saturday.

The Argentinian has been preferred to Joe Hart in domestic knockout competitions this season and will continue after playing in the midweek Capital One Cup semi-final loss at Everton.

Defender Eliaquim Mangala (hamstring) is out, leaving Martin Demichelis and Nicolas Otamendi as the only fit centre-backs in the continued absence of captain Vincent Kompany (calf). Striker Wilfried Bony is also still missing with a leg problem.

Meanwhile, Norwich boss Alex Neil has no fresh injury concerns ahead of his side’s FA Cup third-round tie against Manchester City on Saturday.

New signing Ivo Pinto is eligible for the match after completing his move to the Carrow Road club from Dinamo Zagreb on Friday, but he will not feature having last played on December 9.

Meanwhile, long-term absentee Matt Jarvis is closing in on a return after being sidelined with a knee problem, but will not be risked against City.
