Norwich City vs. Manchester City: Lineups

Edin Dzeko will get a rare start for Manchester City on Saturday, with other strikers facing fitness issues. Both Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli have been ill recently and aren't fit to go 90 minutes. Samir Nasri, who has missed time through injury, also re-joins the side as Roberto Mancini does a bit of squad rotation. Norwich have picked a strong team, but are doing a bit of rotation as well. Grant Holt is out, but Harry Kane is finally fit again and makes the Canaries' bench.

Norwich City staring lineup (4-5-1): Mark Bunn; Javier Garrido, Sebastien Bassong, Michael Turner, Russell Martin; Wes Hoolahan, Bradley Johnson, Alex Tettey, Robert Snodgrass, Anthony Pilkington; Steve Morison

Manchester City starting lineup (4-2-2-2): Joe Hart; Gael Clichy, Matija Nastasić, Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta; Yaya Toure, Gareth Barry; David Silva, Samir Nasri; Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko

Kickoff is at 3 p.m. local, 10 a.m. ET from Carrow Road, and the game can be seen on FOX Soccer in the United States.
