Predicted XI

Team News

Three key question marks persist for Manchester City this weekend as Pep Guardiola makes his managerial return to the touchline for the Premier League champions, but Belgian international star Kevin De Bruyne remains out long term.

Both Mateo Kovačić and Jack Grealish picked up issues just before and during the international break for Croatia and England respectively, and are doubts for selection. If neither pass fit, expect Phil Foden to be deployed on the left flank while Matheus Nunes could deputize and make his full debut for the club alongside Rodri in midfield.

Manuel Akanji and John Stones are expected back, with the Swiss defender likely to slot back straight into the back four.
