With Sergio Aguero ruled out with a groin injury, Edin Dzeko will lead the line for Manchester City against Aston Villa, supported by David Silva.

Victory will see City move two points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table going in to the final game of the season.

Manchester City starting XI: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Kolarov, Garcia, Toure, Milner, Nasri, Silva, Dzeko Substitutes: Pantilimon, Lescott, Richards, Clichy, Fernandinho, Negredo, Jovetic

Aston Villa starting XI: Guzan, Lowton, Vlaar, Clark, Baker, Bertrand, Westwood, Delph, El Ahmadi, Weimann, Bowery Substitutes: Steer, Bacuna, Sylla, Holt, Robinson, Grealish, Tonev

At the other end of the table, Sunderland and West Bromwich Albion look to secure their top flight statuses at the Stadium of Light.

A draw would be enough for both teams to survive thanks to Sunderland's far superior goal difference over 18th-placed Norwich. A win for West Brom would see Sunderland need a point on Sunday.

Sunderland starting XI: Mannone, Vergini, Alonso, Brown, O'Shea, Cattermole, Colback, Larsson, Johnson, Borini, Wickham Substitutes: Bardsley, Altidore, Ba, Giaccherini, Bridcutt, Scocco, Ustari

West Brom starting XI: Foster, Reid, McAuley, Lugano, Brunt, Berahino, Yacob, Morrison, Dorrans, Sessegnon, Anichebe Substitutes: Myhill, Dawson, Sinclair, Vydra, Mulumbu, Olsson, O'Neil
