Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is confident Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero will return against Newcastle on 30 March.
City captain Kompany has been out since January with a calf problem.
Striker Aguero, 24, has not played since sustaining a knee injury in the 2-0 win over Chelsea on 24 February.
"Vincent is not in our plans for [Everton] but I think he will be ready for the Newcastle game, like Sergio," Mancini said.
"It is difficult. Vinny is a really important player for us and now it is 45 days he has been out. It is a big problem.
"Sergio is in Argentina but he will come back on Sunday."
The City manager has also denied speculation linking him with a move to Russian side Zenit St Petersburg.
The Italian added: "It is cold here, I think St Petersburg is [colder]? It is absolutely not true."
