Sergio Aguero starts alongside Alvaro Negredo for Manchester City in their Premier League clash at home to Sunderland.

Aguero, who came on in the second half of City's 3-2 defeat to Liverpool, makes his first start since last month's 2-1 Champions League last-16 second leg defeat to Barcelona at the Nou Camp, where he was brought off at half-time with a hamstring strain.

However there is no place in the City squad for David Silva, who is suffering from a slight ankle injury.

Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Kolarov, Milner, Garcia, Fernandinho, Nasri, Aguero, Negredo

Substitutes: Pantilimon, Lescott, Richards, Clichy, Rodwell, Dzeko, Jovetic

Sunderland: Mannone, Vergini, Alonso, Brown, O'Shea, Cattermole, Colback, Larsson, Johnson, Borini, Wickham

Substitutes: Altidore, Ba, Giaccherini, Scocco, Mavrias, Agnew, Ustari
