Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has made two changes to his starting XI for this afternoon's Premier League clash with Hull City.

Defenders Matija Nastasic and Aleksandar Kolarov replace Javi Garcia and Gael Clichy following last weekend's 3-2 defeat at Cardiff. Midfielder Yaya Toure will wear the captain's armband for the Citizens.

Danny Graham comes in for Yannick Sagbo, who is suspended after being sent off on his debut.

Man City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kolarov, Nastasic, Lescott, Fernandinho, Toure, Silva, Aguero, Dzeko, Navas
