Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has named a strong squad for the Europa League match against Aris Salonika in Greece on Tuesday.

Leading scorer Carlos Tevez is included even though he has rarely featured in the competition this season, as is Mario Balotelli following a knee problem.

Midfielder Michael Johnson has received a boost after his injury problems by joining the group.
