Confirmed Man City v Everton lineups: Sterling returns, Stones at right back

Manchester City Stand

Here is how Manchester City and Everton will line up in the Capital One Cup this evening.

Manchester City head into tonight's Capital One Cup semi-final second leg tie with Everton trailing 2-1 from the first leg.

The first game at Goodison Park earlier this month saw Ramiro Funes Mori open the scoring for Everton, and whilst Jesus Navas pulled City level, Everton grabbed the win with a Romelu Lukaku goal.

That means City overturn the deficit at the Etihad Stadium tonight, and even though Navas scored in the first leg, he is on the bench tonight in favour of the returning Raheem Sterling, who has been on the bench in recent weeks.

Kevin De Bruyne is also named amongst the substitutes, with Fabian Delph seemingly starting on the left hand side for City.

Pablo Zabaleta starts at right back with Bacary Sagna on the bench, whilst youngster Kelechi Iheanacho is also a substitute this evening.

Meanwhile, Everton are just one step away from a historical Merseyside derby final with Liverpool, who made it past Stoke City last night.

Manager Roberto Martinez is under pressure to succeed after Sunday's defeat to Swansea City, and Toffees fans are hoping that the Spaniard can end Everton's long wait for silverware.

Tonight, Martinez has named Joel Robles in goal in place of Tim Howard, whilst John Stones starts at right back with Seamus Coleman on the bench.

Former City midfielder Gareth Barry returns to the Etihad Stadium this evening, whilst talented attacking trio Ross Barkley, Gerard Deulofeu and Romelu Lukaku all start tonight.

After drawing 0-0 at the Etihad Stadium just weeks ago, Everton will know that a repeat performance would send them into the final of the Capital One Cup - and ease some pressure on manager Martinez.
