Wigan Athletic Vs. Manchester City, 2012 Premier League: Lineups

Manchester City will be favored to take all three points from Wigan Athletic on Monday, but other big sides have faced struggles at the DW Stadium this year. Additionally, the Citizens are without some of their best players. Yaya Toure and Kolo Toure have both departed for the Africa Cup of Nations, while Vincent Kompany is suspended. The pressure is on Gareth Barry and Stefan Savic to perform in the absence of City's stars, and Roberto Mancini will likely be happy with the fact that his team gets to play a game without his stars before facing Tottenham Hotspur. Here are the lineups.

Wigan Athletic Lineup (4-4-1-1): Al Habsi; Alcaraz, Caldwell, Stam, Figueroa; McCarthy, Moses, Gomez, McArthur; Crusat; Rodallega

Manchester City Lineup (4-4-2): Hart; Zabaleta, Savic, Lescott, Clichy; Milner, Barry, Nasri, Silva; Aguero, Dzeko

The match kicks off at 3:00 p.m. ET, 8:00 p.m. local time. You can catch it on both ESPN Deportes and ESPN3 in the USA, as well as Sportsnet World in Canada and Sky Sports 1 in the UK.
