Sergio Aguero starts on the bench for Manchester City's trip to West Bromwich Albion.

Sergio Aguero has been made to start on the bench for Manchester City's trip to West Bromwich Albion this afternoon.

The striker equalled Eric Brook's goalscoring record for the Citizens during last weekend's 3-0 triumph over Burnley but is relegated to the substitutes today after a lengthy run-out against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the EFL Cup on Tuesday night.

Gabriel Jesus is the man to come into the starting XI in just the one change from Pep Guardiola following that win over Sean Dyche's side, with Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane keeping their places up front alongside Jesus in a 4-3-3 formation.

Fernandinho, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne make up the midfield, while Kyle Walker, John Stones, Nicolas Otamendi and Fabian Delph are in an unchanged backline ahead of Ederson between the posts.

For the hosts, Tony Pulis makes two changes from the 1-0 defeat at Southampton last Saturday as he looks to end a run that has seen the side go winless in the league since August 19.

Craig Dawson faces a potentially lengthy spell on the sidelines after picking up thigh and knee injuries against the Saints, meaning a recall for Allan Nyom in the back four alongside Jonny Evans, Ahmed Hegazi and Kieran Gibbs.

There is also one change in the midfield, with Gareth McAuley coming in for Nacer Chadli alongside Jay Rodriguez, Grzegorz Krychowiak, Jake Livermore and Gareth Barry.

Salomon Rondon continues to lead the line and Ben Foster stays put between the posts.

Elsewhere, Hal Robson-Kanu is named among the substitutes after overcoming his muscular problem.

West Bromwich Albion: Foster; Nyom, Evans, Hegazi, Gibbs; Rodriguez, Krychowiak, Livermore, Barry, McAuley; Rondon
Subs: Myhill, Robson-Kanu, Yacob, Phillips, Brunt, McClean, Chadli

Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph; Fernandinho, D Silva, De Bruyne; B Silva, Sane, Jesus
Subs: Bravo, Danilo, Sterling, Gundogan, Aguero, Mangala, Toure
