Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is hopeful Kolo Toure will be fit for the trip to West Ham this weekend.
Toure was forced off after just half an hour of his side's victory over Bolton last weekend with a calf injury.
Mancini insists the injury is not serious and that they will give the former Arsenal man until the last minute to prove his fitness for the trip to Upton Park.
"With Kolo we will have to wait to see," Mancini told the club's official website.
"His calf was very sore after Saturday, but it does not look like it is a serious injury.
"Now we are starting to play every few days again we need to have all the players available.
"We had a lot of injuries at the start of the season, and now that we have so many games coming up I hope that we don't start getting many more."
