It's time for one of the least fun fixtures of the season. Lineups:
TEAM NEWS (revised): Hart, Zabaleta, Garcia, Nastasic, Kolarov, Milner, Rodwell, Toure (C), Nasri, Negredo, Jovetic #stokevcity #mcfc— Manchester City FC (@MCFC) September 14, 2013
#SCFC XI: Begovic; Cameron, Shawcross, Huth, Pieters; Walters, Nzonzi, Adam, Wilson, Etheringron; Jones.— Stoke City FC (@stokecity) September 14, 2013
Many, many changes. A first start for both Stevan Jovetic and Alvaro Negredo. James Milner and Jack Rodwell step into the central midfield (we've got an all-English midfield!), and Javi Garcia and Aleksandar Kolarov remain in defense.
