David Silva returns to Manchester City's starting lineup to face Huddersfield Town as one of three changes from last weekend.

David Silva has been recalled to Manchester City's starting lineup to face Huddersfield Town for his 250th appearance in the Premier League.

The Spain international has been left out for the Citizens' wins over Chelsea and Arsenal in the Community Shield and league respectively over the past fortnight, but returns for today's first home outing of the campaign to reach the landmark milestone.

Silva comes in as one of three changes from the 2-0 win at Arsenal last weekend, along with skipper Vincent Kompany and Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus.

Raheem Sterling, Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez all make way, with the trio included among City's subs at the Etihad Stadium.

In terms of the visitors, David Wagner has also made three alterations eight days on from his side's 3-0 home loss at the hands of Chelsea.

Former City player Aaron Mooy misses out as his partner is due to give birth, while Jonathan Hogg and Mathias Jorgensen also make way in place of Tommy Smith, Jon Gorenc Stankovic and Abdelhamid Sabiri.

City have failed to score in four successive home league matches against the Terriers, most recently playing out a 0-0 draw in May.

Manchester City: Ederson; Laporte, Stones, Kompany, Mendy; Fernandinho; Gundogan, David Silva, Bernardo Silva; Gabriel Jesus, Aguero
Subs: Bravo, Walker, Sterling, Sane, Mahrez, Otamendi, Foden

Huddersfield Town: Hamer; Kongolo, Smith, Schindler, Hadergjonaj; Sabiri, Stankovic, Billing; Pritchard, Lowe; Mounie
Subs: Lossl, Williams, Mbenza, van La Parra, Sobhi, Diakhaby, Depoitre
