Best lineup for this game would be:
Zabaleta - Kompany - Lescott - Clichy
Silva - Toure - Garcia - Nasri
Tevez - Aguero
Dzeko or Balotelli to sub in at some point along with Maicon.
I doubt Mancini is going to risk giving Aguero a start with him just starting to return. I love Garcia already though so I agree with most of the players you chose. I think Dzeko will start given the fact that he had rested against Stoke and he's in fine form. Clichy definitely has to start over Kolarov in this type of game. Aguero will probably come around the 60th minute.
