Yaya Toure is back to form.
He carries the side when fit and remains one of the world's best players, so his presence at the African Cup of Nations 2013 for Ivory Coast seriously hurt Manchester City.
His first game back wasn't great, but after a little rest and shedding of jet lag, he's back to his beast-like outings once more.
He was a key factor in breaking down Chelsea's stubborn defensive outlook on Sunday and will look to make mincemeat of Aston Villa's significantly weaker midfield.
Should Paul Lambert man-mark him, should he stick two on him or should he use a fluid marking system in which the nearest man picks him up?
Could he use a suffoco in Andi Weimann?
