Argentine international Sergio Aguero starts as a lone centre-forward for Manchester City against Chelsea.

Argentine Sergio Aguero will feature as a lone centre-forward for Manchester City against Chelsea this afternoon.

David Silva will provide the support from an advanced midfield role, while Jack Rodwell has been included in the midfield.

Captain Vincent Kompany is also still absent with a muscular injury and as a result Kolo Toure has come into the side at centre-back.

Meanwhile, Chelsea skipper John Terry has dropped down to the bench, with David Luiz and Gary Cahill preferred in defence. Fernando Torres has also missed out, with Demba Ba handed a starting role instead.

Man City: Hart; Zabaleta, K Toure, Nastasic, Clichy; Garcia, Rodwell, Y Toure, Milner, Silva; Aguero

Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Luiz, Cole; Mikel, Lampard, Ramires, Mata, Hazard; Ba
