Manuel Pellegrini has named Edin Dzeko and Samir Nasri in his starting XI as he looks to kick-start the form of his star man Sergio Aguero.
Aguero has not scored since in the four games he's played since returning from injury on 10 January and missed a brilliant chance against Chelsea last week.
Pellegrini has made one other change from the team that drew 1-1 at Stamford Bridge, Pablo Zabaleta starting at right-back instead of Bacary Sagna. Jesus Navas and James Milner are the two other players who drop to the bench.
New Hull signing Dame N'Doye starts on the bench.
