Sergio Aguero returns to the Manchester City starting line-up, reprising his partnership with Carlos Tevez as they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Roberto Mancini has reinstalled the Sergio Aguero-Carlos Tevez partnership that proved so successful at the end of last season as his side travel to Craven Cottage to face Fulham.

Aguero had missed a few games with injury, but has returned to the City starting eleven as they struggle for form, having been sent crashing out of the League Cup to Aston Villa and without a win in four games. Yet another Argentine, Pablo Zabaleta, starts at right-back due to the injuries to Micah Richards and Maicon.

Fulham, meanwhile, make do in Dimitar Berbatov's absence by handing Hugo Rodallega a start out wide, with Bryan Ruiz moving into one of the striking berths just behind Mladen Petric.

Fulham: Schwarzer; Riether, Hughes, Hangeland, Riise; Duff, Baird, Sidwell, Rodallega; Ruiz, Petric. Bench: Stockdale, Kelly, Kasami, Karagounis, Kacaniklic, Briggs, Smith.

Manchester City: Hart; Zabaleta, Clichy, Kompany, Nastasic; Barry, Yaya Toure, Garcia; Silva, Aguero, Tevez. Bench: Pantilimon, Lescott, Milner, Nasri, Dzeko, Kolarov, Balotelli.
