Joe Hart and Samir Nasri return to the Manchester City starting XI as they welcome West Bromwich Albion to the Etihad.

Joe Hart and Samir Nasri have returned to the Manchester City starting XI as they welcome West Bromwich Albion to the Etihad this evening.

Willy Caballero drops to the bench as Hart comes back into the side after missing the rout of Bournemouth last time out with a calf injury.

Sergio Aguero is joined by Wilfried Bony to provide the attacking threat as Manuel Pellegrini switches to a 4-4-2 formation.

Nasri is back in the middle of the park for his first start since September alongside Fernando, Jesus Navas and Fabian Delph as Kevin De Bruyne drops to the bench and David Silva misses out with an ankle injury.

Yaya Toure has overcome a shin complaint to feature in the matchday squad but starts among the substitutes, while the fixture comes too soon for skipper Vincent Kompany.

Pellegrini makes one change to his back four, bringing in Aleksandar Kolarov for Gael Clichy at left-back.

Meanwhile, visiting manager Tony Pulis names Salomon Rondon to lead the line as he opts for a 4-2-3-1 formation.

James McClean and Stephane Sessegnon come into the XI to partner Saido Berahino behind Rondon, forcing Claudio Yacob and Craig Gardner to drop to the bench.

Manchester City: Hart; Zabaleta, Otamendi, Mangala, Kolarov; Fernando, Delph, Navas, Nasri; Bony, Aguero
Subs: Caballero, Demichelis, Clichy, Fernandinho, Toure, De Bruyne, Iheanacho

West Bromwich Albion: Foster; Chester, Evans, McAuley, Dawson; Fletcher, Sandro; Berahino, McClean, Sessegnon; Rondon
Subs: Myhill; Olsson, Yacob, Gardner, Anichebe, McManaman, Leko
