City welcome back key pair

04 October 2009 09:22
Emmanuel Adebayor and Stephen Ireland will return for Manchester City at Aston Villa on Monday.

After completing a three-match ban Adebayor has been cleared to play after escaping an FA misconduct charge with a £25,000 fine following his controversial goal celebration against Arsenal last month.

Ireland has recovered from a sickness bug and he should also be involved as Gareth Barry faces his former club.
