Benjamin Mendy remains unavailable due to a club suspension, while it appears likely that Aymeric Laporte and John Stones will remain on the sidelines through injury, meaning that Nathan Ake should keep his spot in the middle of the defence alongside Ruben Dias.
Riyad Mahrez and Gabriel Jesus are battling for the spot on the right, and the fact that Mahrez played the full game against Wycombe Wanderers in the EFL Cup during the week suggests that Jesus could get the nod here, as the Brazilian was an unused substitute in the cup affair.
Raheem Sterling is struggling for league starts at the moment, meanwhile, and the England international is again expected to be named on the bench this weekend.
Manchester City possible starting lineup: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Ake, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Gundogan; Jesus, Torres, Grealish
