Man City v Everton preview
Manchester City have no fresh injury concerns to contend with heading into a home date with Everton, but may decide to freshen things up following a disappointing showing against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
David Silva made a welcome return to action in midweek, stepping off the bench, and he could be drafted back into the starting XI alongside the likes of Alvaro Negredo, James Milner and Pablo Zabaleta.
The only men out of action at present are former Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell (muscle strain) and Argentinian centre-half Martin Demichelis (knee).
Everton boss Roberto Martinez hopes midfield duo Darron Gibson and Kevin Mirallas shake off knocks to put themselves in contention.
Gibson has been sidelined with a knee complaint, but is likely to figure, while Mirallas is rated at 50-50 as he continues to nurse an ankle problem.
There will be at least one change made to the starting line-up, with the terms of Gareth Barry's loan from City making him ineligible.
