Sergio Aguero has returned to the Manchester City fold, with the Argentine striker back on the bench after shaking off an injury suffered in a car accident.
The South American has been missing since suffering a broken rib in late September.
It was initially suggested that he could be out of action for up to six weeks, forcing him to miss crucial games in the Premier League and Champions League.
Aguero has, however, been drafted back into Pep Guardiola's plans after making a speedy recovery and playing a full part in training.
He could now make his first appearance since September 26 when City play host to Stoke.
Yaya Toure could also be seen in Premier League action for the first time this season after being named among the substitutes.
Man City team: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Delph, Silva, De Bruyne, Sane, Sterling, Gabriel Jesus.
Man City subs: Bravo, Danilo, Gundogan, Aguero, Mangala, Silva, Toure.
