Sergio Aguero returns from a groin injury to start against West Ham for Manchester City, who need just a point to be crowned Premier League champions at the Etihad Stadium.

Aguero was left out for the 4-0 win over Aston Villa after suffering the injury against Everton, but partners Edin Dzeko - who scored twice in midweek - up front.
