Manchester City looks to at least keep pace with Chelsea at the top of the table and take advantage of a Hull City side currently in the relegation zone live online at 10am ET on NBC Sports Live Extra.
Steve Bruce has seen few things go his way this season, and stuck in 18th, things will be even harder today with a trip to the Emirates and Samir Nasri making his return for the Sky Blues. Eliquiem Mangala is back from injury as well, giving home manager Manuel Pellegrini a completely full-strength lineup.
He starts both strikers available to him as well, with the combination of Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero paired up at the front, a rarity these days with so few true head men on the City roster. Wilfried Bony is still away on international duty, with his country in the final of the African Cup of Nations.
The visitors, meanwhile, do have deadline day signing Dame N’Doye available to them, on the bench after receiving international clearance in time to register for the match. Nikica Jelavic, meanwhile, can only make the bench as he looks to return from a knee injury, so Sone Aluko gets the start at the head of the Hull attack.
Mohamed Diame is a miss with his own knock, while Liam Rosenior and James Chester are long-term injury problems.
