Edin Dezko and James Milner come in for Manchester City for their visit to Villa Park.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has opted to pair Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo in attack for his side's visit to Aston Villa.

James Milner also starts in midfield for the Citizens, replacing Jesus Navas.

For Villa, Libor Kozak keeps his place in the team, but boss Paul Lambert is without Gabriel Agbonlahor. That means a five-man midfield for the home side.

Aston Villa: Guzan; Bacuna, Vlaar, Baker, Clark; El Ahmadi, Weimann, Luna, Delph, Sylla; Kozak.

Manchester City: Hart; Zabaleta, Kompany, Nastasic, Kolarov; Nasri, Fernandinho, Toure, Milner; Negredo, Dzeko
