Manchester City vs Liverpool team news: Manuel Pellegrini makes one change to his side and Brendan Rodgers leaves Lucas out
Sergio Aguero remains on the bench for Pellegrini
Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has made just one change to the side that beat Newcastle last weekend.
Pablo Zabaleta comes in for Aleksandar Kolarov meaning Gael Clichy can take his usual place on the left side of the defence having played at right-back at St James' Park and in the Community Shield defeat against Arsenal.
The line-up sees Pellegrini stick with Stevan Jovetic up front with Sergio Aguero again on the substitutes bench, despite his late goalscoring cameo.
Brendan Rodgers has made two changes to his side, with Alberto Moreno, who makes his debut in, replacing Javier Manquillo, and Joe Allen starting in midfield for Lucas, who may well leave the club before the end of the window - he is being linked with a move to Rafael Benitez's Napoli.
Liverpool's new £16m signing Mario Balotelli will be in the stands for this one.
Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Kompany, Clichy, Fernando, Toure, Nasri, Silva, Jovetic, Dzeko.
Subs: Caballero, Sagna, Kolarov, Fernandinho, Milner, Navas, Aguero.
Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Lovren, Skrtel, Moreno, Gerrard, Coutinho, Henderson, Allen, Sterling, Sturridge
Subs: Jones, Manquillo, Sakho, Toure, Can, Markovic, Lambert.
