Manchester, United Kingdom – Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero returned to the starting XI for his side's Premier League title decider at home to West Ham United on Sunday.

The Argentine, who scored the stoppage-time goal against Queens Park Rangers that won City the title on the final day of the 2011-12 season, sat out the 4-0 win over Aston Villa in mid-week with a groin problem.

Aguero replaced midfielder James Milner in the only change that manager Manuel Pellegrini made to his starting XI.

City lead second-place Liverpool by two points but their 13-goal advantage in terms of goal difference means that they will effectively be assured of the title if they avoid defeat against West Ham. – Sapa-AFP
