An interesting lineup for City. Mancini is choosing to start Javi Garcia and Jack Rodwell together, which means that Yaya Toure will likely play in an advanced role right from the first whistle. Kolo Toure also starts in defense, leaving Joleon Lescott on the bench once again.
City are searching for their 4th straight win over Chelsea at Eastlands, but the confidence boost this match could provide might be even more important.
