Both sides are resting their regular first-choice goalkeepers in Manchester City's trip to Stoke City in the FA Cup.

Joe Hart has been left out of Manchester City's starting lineup for their fourth-round FA Cup tie with Stoke City.

Roberto Mancini has elected to rest his regular goalkeeper, giving Carlos Pantilimon a rare start.

Otherwise, it is business as usual for the Premier League champions, with Edin Dzeko and Carlos Tevez up front, with support from David Silva.

The Potters have also turned to their cup keeper, Thomas Sorensen, giving a break to Asmir Begovic, who is their usual first choice for league games.

Kenwyne Jones is also included, despite being linked with a move away from the Britannia.

Stoke City: Sorensen, Shotton, Shawcross, Huth, Wilkinson, Kightly, Whelan, Nzonzi, Etherington, Walters, Jones.

Manchester City: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Kolarov, Milner, Garcia, Barry, Silva, Dzeko, Tevez.
