Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany will make his first Premier League appearance since November when Pep Guardiola's side take on league leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The 30-year-old has suffered another injury-plagued campaign at the Etihad Stadium, restricted to six appearances across all competitions.
The last of those came when he completed 90 minutes in the 3-0 FA Cup win over Crystal Palace in January.
Kompany then suffered another injury setback but was an unused substitute for Sunday's 2-2 draw at Arsenal, when City's defending once again came under the microscope.
He will line up alongside John Stones at centre-back from kick-off, while Fabian Delph makes his first Premier League start of the season in the City midfield and there is another long-awaited return in the Chelsea defence.
