Yaya Toure returns from a knee injury to start for Manchester City against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The midfielder came off in the first half of the 3-2 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield two weeks ago, but goes straight back into Manuel Pellegrini's starting line-up.

James Milner also starts for City, with Fernandinho and Alvaro Negredo on the bench, while Sergio Aguero partners Edin Dzeko up front.

Tony Pulis' Palace go in search of a sixth straight Premier League win.
