Manchester City will be feeling confident going into the clash with Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League, with the comprehensive 3-1 victory over Liverpool there on Monday still fresh in the minds.
However, Manuel Pellegrini has decided to make one or two changes to his line-up. Kolarov comes in for Clichy at left-back, while former Arsenal star Bacary Sagna makes his debut in place of Pablo Zabaleta.
Sergio Aguero is deemed fit enough to start a match, having come off the bench to score in City's first two Premier League fixtures.
Here are the teams...
art, Sagna, Kolarov, Kompany (C), Demichelis, Fernando, Nasri, Yaya Toure, Silva, Jovetic, Aguero.
Subs: Caballero, Clichy, Zabaleta, Fernandinho, Milner, Navas, Dzeko
