Who else is excited to see Jovetic and Aguero start together? Dzeko didn't really do anything to deserve going to bte bench, but it's hard to keep Mr. Aguero out of a side for too long. The other change of note is that Bacary Sagna will make his debut as Zabaleta gets a rest. I expect we'll see more of this rotation in the future. Former City boy Glenn Whelan starts for Stoke but Stephen Ireland misses out through injury.
