Not surprisingly the Blues are unchanged from the team that drew with Arsenal last week, as they go seeking the point they need to secure Champions League qualification.
Perhaps the City bench is a pointer to the future, with the futures of Yaya Toure, Martin Demichelis, Aleks Kolarov, Wilfried Bony, Willy Caballero and Samir Nasri all in some doubt.
Nasri is at least back in the squad after Manuel Pellegrini left him out last week and was then curiously evasive about the reasons for his omission before settling on illness.
CITY: Hart, Sagna, Otamendi, Mangala, Clichy, Fernando, Fernandinho, Navas, Iheanacho, De Bruyne, Aguero. Subs: Caballero, Demichelis, Kolarov, Toure, Nasri, Sterling, Bony
