Manchester City vs. Fulham: Lineups

Edin Dzeko makes a surprise start for Manchester City as they face Fulham at home in the Premier League.

The Bosnian has largely made more of an impact off the bench this season, but he starts with Carlos Tevez in behind, with David Silva and James Milner on the flanks. There is also a start for Javi Garcia, alongside James Milner in midfield. Matija Nastasic continues alongside Vincent Kompany at the back, with the City captain available to play after having his red card rescinded.

Fulham, meanwhile, welcome Dimitar Berbatov back to the team as he leads the line in a 4-5-1 formation. Bryan Ruiz, Giorgios Karagounis and Damien Duff will provide support.

Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Joe Hart; Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany, Matija Nastasic, Gael Clichy; Javi Garcia, Gareth Barry; James Milner, Carlos Tevez, David Silva; Edin Dzeko.

Fulham (4-5-1): Mark Schwarzer; Sasha Riether, Aaron Hughes, Brede Hangeland, Kieran Richardson; Damien Duff, Steve Sidwell, Giorgios Karagounis, Bryan Ruiz, Ashkan Dejagah; Dimitar Berbatov.
