First thing I've noticed is no Nastasic, and he isn't on the bench either so I'm not sure if I've missed him picking up an injury or something. Secondly, welcome back Yaya and Vinnie. Should be a big boost to the squad. Aguero will start on the bench as well. Mancini has also given Nasri yet another chance to show us something. He needs to put in a good performance.
Obviously it goes without saying that this is a match we should win, but should we somehow lose, then that means the title could be officially decided at Old Trafford next week... let's hope that doesn't happen.
