Team News: David Silva returns for Manchester City

David Silva returns to the Manchester City starting lineup as one of three changes for their match against West Bromwich Albion this evening.

David Silva has returned to the starting lineup for Manchester City's Premier League encounter with West Bromwich Albion at the Etihad Stadium this evening.

Silva missed Wednesday's shock 2-2 draw with Sunderland through injury but has recovered in time to replace James Milner in the starting XI for tonight's game.

Edin Dzeko also returns to the starting lineup in place of Alvaro Negredo, while Gael Clichy comes in for Aleksander Kolarov as City look to keep the pressure on Liverpool at the top of the table.

West Brom, meanwhile, make just the two changes from the side that drew 3-3 with Tottenham Hotspur in their last outing, with Craig Dawson and Billy Jones replacing Steven Reid and Gareth McAuley.

Man City: Hart; Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Clichy; Garcia, Fernandinho, Nasri, Silva; Dzeko, Aguero
Subs: Pantilimon, Lescott, Richards, Kolarov, Milner, Negredo, Jovetic

West Brom: Foster; Dawson, Olsson, Ridgewell, Jones; Amalfitano, Mulumbu, Dorrans, Brunt; Sessegnon, Vydra
Subs: Myhill, Morrison, Anichebe, Yacob, Lugano, Berahino, Reid
