As expected Danny Simpson makes a return to the starting line up at Manchester City today, and Vurnon Anita and Jonas Gutierrez also start.
And Australian Curtis Good, who turned 20 last Saturday, makes the bench for the very first time, and 18 year-old striker Adam Campbell is also a substitute, along with 19 year-old midfielder Gael Bigirimana.
Vurnon Anita will play in the defensive midfield position in place of the injured Cheick Tiote, and it looks like Jonas Gutierrez is in at left back – which is a surprise – with James Perch on the bench.
For Manchester City, Vincent Kompany comes back in central defense, but Sergio Aguero only makes the bench this afternoon.
We need to take something out of this game this afternoon.
