We learn a little bit more about Berbatov's injury from Martin Jol today:
"Unfortunately Dimitar is injured now and can’t play on Saturday so that is the disappointing thing," Jol told the gathered media. "He will be out for the next two weeks.
"In his session he was looking good, as usual, and then his final shot he felt something and he had to go in and stop training. It appears he had – not a tear – but a sort of problem with his hip and upper thigh so we couldn’t take the risk to involve him against City.
"Diarra had a minor operation but he will still be out for the next four weeks at least.
