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 think mancini might try to act smart and go more defensive with tevez as the lone striker and rodwell or barry as DM alongside Garcia, so Yaya can go further.
