Aleix Garcia celebrates his goal

Aleix Garcia wins a rare start against Huddersfield Town as Pep Guardiola fields a strong starting XI.

Starting XI:

Bravo, Clichy, Stones, Otamendi, Zabaleta, Fernandinho, A Garcia, De Bruyne, Sterling, Aguero, Sane

Subs: Caballero, Iheanacho, Fernando, Navas, Delph, Sagna, Silva


The Blues could go 4-2-3-1 with Fernandinho and Garcia possibly playing in front of the back four – though this could just as easily be 4-1-4-1 – and may well be at various points of the game.

Garcia may partner Kevin De Bruyne as the creative feed for Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero.

Claudio Bravo, who impressed in the first clash with Huddersfield, resumes his place.

Aleks Kolarov, Nolito and Yaya Toure have all been rested for tonight’s game.
