Tactics

With Fabian Delph not fully fit, versatile Brazilian defender Danilo is likely to drop into the left-back role fresh from his debut City goal against Bournemouth last time out.

The rest of the backline remains unchanged with Vincent Kompany skippering the side.

In midfield, Fernandinho should play the anchor role behind Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne. Bernardo is likely to be stationed on the left flank and Raheem Sterling on the right, although there is always the chance those two could switch around.

Up front Sergio Aguero will look to add to his 12 Premier League goals for the season so far.
