Man City v Villa team news: Lambert names unchanged side


By Paul Brown

Paul Lambert has named an unchanged side from the team which went down 3-2 in an exhilarating contest with Man Utd.

Enda Stevens keeps his place at left-back while Ashley Westwood and Barry Bannan continue in the central ground.

Lambert goes with the attacking three of Gabby Agbonlahor, two-goal hero Andreas Weimann and Christian Benteke as he looks to cause Man City problems.

There's one change on the bench, Nathan Baker replacing Derrick Williams.

It's a strong line-up for City too, Joe Hart - praised by Brad Guzan in the week - in goal for the champions.

Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero start up top with former Villa star Gareth Barry in the central ground.

Programme cover star James Milner isn't involved.

Villa: Guzan, Lowton, Vlaar [c], Clark, Stevens, Westwood, Bannan, Ireland, Weimann, Agbonlahor, Benteke. Subs: Given, Albrighton, Holman, Delph, El Ahmadi, Bowery, Baker.

Man City: Hart, Kompany, Clichy, Nastasic, Maicon, Y Toure, Barry, Silva, Nasri, Aguero, Tevez. Subs: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Lescott, Kolarov, Sinclair, Garcia, Dzeko.
