Silva, Bony could face Southampton
Manchester City hope their injury crisis will ease with David Silva and Wilfried Bony in contention to make comebacks against Southampton on Saturday. Striker Bony suffered a hamstring injury against Aston Villa in November while midfielder Silva has already sat out eight games with the ankle problem he sustained in October. Manager Manuel Pellegrinie is without six injured players, plus ineligible forward Kelechi Iheanacho, for Wednesday's UEFA Champions League clash with Juventus in Italy.
Double injury blow for Chelsea
Jose Mourinho blamed the poor pitch at Haifa's Sammy Ofer Stadium for the ankle injury to John Terry which is expected to see the Chelsea captain ruled out of Sunday's Premier League clash at Tottenham. "The surface was bad and dangerous," Mourinho said. "John has an ankle problem that we don't know yet the dimension of.
Ramires was not in the matchday squad after suffering an injury in training on Monday, when Chelsea tried to minimise their time on the pitch. "Yesterday we tried to protect (the pitch), we trained just a little bit. But by my surprise Maccabi were training after us, plus the warm-up before the game," Mourinho said." The pitch was really bad. Ramires slid and had a muscular injury."
Berardi handed three-match ban
Sassuolo's Domenico Berardi has been given a three-match suspension for his violent kick on Genoa defender Cristian Ansaldi on Sunday. Despite only making his Serie A debut three years ago, the hot-headed Calabrian has received 27 yellow cards in 71 Serie A appearances, which is more than anyone else during this specific time period.
Kyei sidelined for two months
Stade de Reims striker Grejohn Kyei is facing two months in the treatment room after suffering a training ground injury. The 20-year-old Ghanaian sprained his right ankle last week and the doctors expect him to be out of action for eight weeks. Kyei has been plastered and looks like he might not play against for the Ligue 1 side before the winter break.
Di Maria back, Pastore and Lavezzi still out
Angel Di Maria is back in the Paris Saint-Germain squad for Wednesday's Champions League clash with Malmo, but Javier Pastore and Ezequiel Lavezzi are still out. Di Maria missed Saturday's 2-1 win Ligue 1 over Lorient because of a calf injury, but could feature as PSG aim to seal qualification for the last 16. However, fellow Argentina internationals Lavezzi and Pastore remain on the sidelines. Lavezzi has a knee injury while Pastore has not played since October 21 because of conjunctivitis and a calf problem.
Marco Verratti (ankle) had already been ruled out by coach Laurent Blanc and David Luiz is suspended. Defender Serge Aurier (quadriceps) is also missing from the squad.
Coutinho diagnosed with minor hamstring injury
Philippe Coutinho has been diagnosed with a minor hamstring strain following a scan on the injury he suffered in Liverpool's 4-1 demolition of Manchester City. Reds medical staff opted to give it 48 hours to settle down in the hope that it was just cramp but the decision was taken to send Coutinho to be scanned on Monday evening. The results show that the damage is only minor. The 23-year-old is highly unlikely to feature in Thursday night's Europa League clash with Bordeaux at Anfield, but Liverpool believe he has an outside chance of being fit for the visit of Swansea City in the Premier League on Sunday.
Van Gaal expects Martial and Rooney to be fit for PSV
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal expects Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney to be fit for the PSV game. Martial missed the game against Watford at the weekend with a foot injury, while Rooney was absent due to illness, but both could well feature in Wednesday's crucial Champions League group game.
Coquelin sidelined for two months
Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin will be out for at least two months after suffering a knee ligament injury. Coquelin, 24, was injured during his side's 2-1 defeat by West Brom at The Hawthorns on Saturday. Arsenal are also without midfielders Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere, as well as forwards Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck.
Marcelo suffers thigh injury
Real Madrid's woes deepened on Monday when tests confirmed defender Marcelo damaged a thigh muscle in Saturday's 4-0 defeat by Barcelona in the Clasico. The Brazilian international had to come off in the 59th minute of the humiliating reverse at the Bernabeu. Real did not say how long Marcelo might be sidelined but local media reported he would be out for two or three weeks. Real Madrid captain and centre back Sergio Ramos has also not been included in the squad for the trip to play Shakhtar Donetsk in Champions League on Wednesday.
Hernanes out for three weeks
Juventus midfielder Hernanes will be out of action for three weeks because of a thigh injury. The Brazil international was forced off at half-time in Saturday's 1-0 Serie A win over Milan. Hernanes miss league games with Palermo, Lazio and Fiorentina and the Champions League games with Manchester City and Sevilla. He could return in the last game before the mid-season break, which is away to Carpi.
Khedira, Evra doubtful for City clash
Sami Khedira and Patrice Evra both look set to miss Juventus' UEFA Champions League clash with Manchester City on Wednesday. Khedira, 28, missed Saturday's 1-0 Serie A win over Milan with a muscle injury he picked up while on international duty with Germany. Evra, 34, suffered a light twisted ankle during the Milan match and his condition will be monitored over the course of the coming days.
Cheick Tiote suffers groin injury
Newcastle United fear that Cheick Tiote is facing weeks on the sidelines, leaving manager Steve McClaren with a midfield crisis. Tiote was forced off early in Saturday's 3-0 home defeat to Leicester City due to a groin injury. With Jack Colback already sidelined and not expected back for at least a couple of weeks, McClaren was forced to reshuffle his midfield and bring Georginio Wijnaldum into the centre, though the Dutchman did not look comfortable there.
Peyton Manning out two more weeks
Peyton Manning is expected to miss at least two more games with a torn plantar fascia in his left foot. The Denver Broncos quarterback missed last week's 17-15 win at Chicago when his longtime backup Brock Osweiler won his first NFL start. Other than 2011, when Manning had spinal fusion surgery and missed the season, Sunday's game was the first start Manning missed in his other 17 seasons.
Horton and Hill suspended by NFL
The NFL has announced that Carolina Panthers backup defensive end Wes Horton has been suspended without pay for next four games for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances. The league also announced injured wide receiver Stephen Hill has been suspended without pay for one game for violating the NFL's policy and program for substances of abuse.

Gerbe sidelined 4-6 weeks
The Carolina Hurricanes expect Nathan Gerbe to miss 4-6 weeks with a lower-body injury. The forward was injured Sunday on a hit in the corner from Los Angeles forward Kyle Clifford in the first period of a 4-3 win over the Kings. Gerbe has one goal and two assists in 20 games this season with Carolina.
injuriesNBA : Boston Celtics : 23.11.15
Smart out at least two weeks
Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart will miss at least two weeks of action due to a lower left leg injury sustained in Friday's win over the Brooklyn Nets. Smart limped off after banging knees with Brooklyn's Thomas Robinson early in the fourth quarter. The team initially classified it a bone bruise, but further testing revealed the dislocation. Smart has averaged 9.8 points in nine games, including eight starts.
Mozgov out 2 weeks
The Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov could miss the next two weeks with a strained shoulder and guard Mo Williams is out for the next two games, another blow to a team that's had more than its share of injuries. Mozgov left in the first half of Thursday's win over Milwaukee and did not return in the second half. An MRI taken Friday revealed a strained right deltoid, and the team said he will be out at least 10 days. Williams, who is running Cleveland's offense while Irving continues to recover from surgery, will miss Saturday's game against Atlanta with a sore right ankle. Williams is also listed as doubtful for Monday's home game against Orlando.
