(1)4-3-3 is the formation for Man City, starting with Ederson in goal. The centre-back positions should be filled by Otamendi and new arrival Laporte, meaning that Stones will be dropped to the bench. Walker and Danilo should play as the full-backs once again, however Zinchenko has shown Pep Guardiola enough confidence to potentially start him in the left-back position now. Fernandinho could play with Silva and De Bruyne in a line of three. Next up are Sterling, Aguero and Sane could line up together once again, with Jesus still injured and out for now. Mendy and Delph also remain out through injury and suspension respectively.
Walker – Laporte – Otamendi – Danilo
Silva – Fernandinho – De Bruyne
Sterling – Aguero – Sane
