Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has made no fewer than six changes to his starting XI for this afternoon's Premier League clash with Crystal Palace, which features a team with no recognised striker.
Injuries to Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzenko and Stevan Jovetic have forced Pellegrini's hand, with the Chilean deciding that James Milner's tireless work ethic means he can lead the line against the Eagles.
Martin Demichelis replaces the injured Vincent Kompany at centre-back for City, while Palace have decided to swap Marouane Chamakh for Frazier Campbell as their lone striker.
Man City starting XI: Hart, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Mangala, Kolarov, Fernandinho, Navas, Yaya Toure, Silva, Nasri, Milner
Subs: Caballero, Boyata, Sagna, Fernando, Lampard, Ambrose
Palace starting XI: Speroni, Kelly, Dann, Hangeland, Ward, Puncheon, Jedinak, Ledley, McArthur, Bolasie. Campbell
Subs: Hennessey, Mariappa, Delaney, Bannan, Thomas, Gayle, Zaha
