Given returns to face West Brom
Shay Given is set to make his first appearance of this season for Manchester City in their Carling Cup third round tie at West Brom tomorrow.
The Ireland star has been told he can leave Eastlands in January by manager Roberto Mancini after being overlooked for the number one shirt in favour of Joe Hart.
But he is set to feature in a much-changed Blues line-up as Mancini looks ahead to Saturday's crucial Premier League clash with Chelsea.
Team (from): Hart, Given, Taylor, Zabaleta, Richards, K Toure, Kompany, Boyata, Cunningham, De Jong, Vieira, Ibrahim, Wright-Phillips, Y Toure, Silva, Barry, Milner, Johnson, Tevez, Jo, Adebayor, Santa Cruz.
