SAFE HANDS: Ederson thwarts the danger

Ederson starts against Feyenoord despite suffering a nasty facial injury at the weekend as City make one change from the team that thrashed Liverpool.

Team news

City XI: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Mendy, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Silva (c), Jesus, Aguero

Subs: Bravo, Danilo, Sterling, Gundogan, Mangala, Delph, Sane

Bernardo starts, Danilo on the bench

City look as though they may start with a 4-4-2, though this could just as easily be a 3-5-2 or any other variation Pep comes up with!

It’s an attacking line up with Bernardo, Silva, De Bruyne behind Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero with Fernandinho likely to anchor the midfield.
