The A-team for the Citizens is largely made up of the same faces. Erling Haaland and Riyad Mahrez line out up front with either Phil Foden or Jack Grealish stepping in on the left side. The midfield is anchored by Rodri alongside Kevin De Bruyne with either Bernardo Silva or Ilkay Gundogan slotting into the final spot.

The defence is where we see the most change, largely due to injuries, but Manuel Akanji and Nathan Ake are pretty much constant features in the back four. Ederson remains the first-choice option in goals.

Recent Tactics and Form

Pep Guardiola has been steadfast with the old reliable 4-3-3, although a brief change was made against Chelsea where he set up in a 3-2-4-1. For the first time in a while, the club is somewhat stumbling, with only two wins from their last five games in all competitions.

The ship will no doubt correct course, this is one of the top sides in England after all. But for now, the squad has to navigate a rocky patch.

Injuries to Consider

Defenders John Stones and Ruben Dias are currently the only players on the injured list. This presents an issue as they are two of the first-choice centre-back options but as shown against Manchester United, Ake can slide across from left-back to cover.
