Manchester City vs. Everton: Lineups

Manchester City, as you might expect, make a couple changes from their mid-week win over Wigan. Sergio Agüero, Matija Nastasić, Pablo Zabaleta, Mario Balotelli, and Javi Garcia all return to the bench, replaced by Carlos Tevez, Joleon Lescott, Aleksandar Kolarov, Edin Džeko and Samir Nasri. It really isn't fair honestly to pull nearly half your lineup and replace them with as good or better players.

Everton's lineup is exactly the same as their mid-week draw against Arsenal. Unlike City, David Moyes's player cupboard is bare so you gotta play who ya got. It'll be a tough ask for the Toffees but they are the last team to beat City at the Ethiad, so you never know.

Manchester City starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Joe Hart, Maicon, Vincent Kompany, Joleon Lescott, Aleksandar Kolarov; Yaya Toure, Gareth Barry; David Silva, Samir Nasri, Carlos Tevez; Edin Džeko.

Everton starting lineup (4-4-1-1): Tim Howard; Tony Hibbert, Sylvain Distin, Phil Jagielka, Leighton Baines; Steven Naismith, Steven Pienaar, Leon Osman, Darron Gibson; Marouane Fellaini; Nikica Jelavić.
