There are two changes at full-back, with Aleksandar Kolarov and Pablo Zabaleta returning to the fold, while Fabian Delph gets the nod ahead of Yaya Toure, who drops to the bench.
Raheem Sterling also begins the game in the dugout as Pellegrini hands starts to David Silva and Kelechi Iheanacho, who makes his second full debut up front alongside Sergio Aguero.
