Stoke City boss Tony Pulis could make a couple of changes from the side that lost to Swansea, with Thomas Sorensen likely to be given a chance to impress in goal.
Cameron Jerome and Kenwyne Jones are both pushing for starts, but Jonathan Walters and Peter Crouch are likely to retain their starting berths - with the latter historically impressing against City. Rory Delap (hernia) and Marc Wilson (broken leg) both remain sidelined.
As for the visitors, Roberto Mancini is also likely to change his goalkeeper, with Costel Pantilimon set to replace Joe Hart between the posts. Joleon Lescott and Aleksandar Kolarov could also be handed rare starts, while Samir Nasri and Jack Rodwell remain in contention.
Further forward, Sergio Aguero is likely to get an opportunity to boost his fitness levels, possibly in place of fellow Argentine Carlos Tevez, while Mario Balotelli is again set to be on the bench.
Right back duo Maicon and Micah Richards (knee injuries) are both still out.
