Pellegrini added: “We will assess him on Monday, but this will be the first day he will work with the team.
“It is difficult, but we will see. From the moment he starts working with the squad, he has a chance. But he’s not been working for about a month.So we will wait.
“It’s a difficult decision. It is not easy to know really if he can play, if he is able to play 90 minutes, if he is fully recovered and not force us to make a change the first 10 minutes.”
