Boss Pep Guardiola made just one change to the side that defeated Everton at the weekend for the Champions League first leg clash against Liverpool.
City XI: Ederson, Walker, Kompany (C), Otamendi, Laporte, Fernandinho, Gündogan, De Bruyne, Sané, Silva, Jesus
Substitutes: Bravo, Danilo, Stones, Sterling, Delph, Bernardo, Zinchenko
January signing Laporte looks set to continue at left-back following a solid showing against the Toffees, with skipper Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi in the central positions. Kyle Walker will assume his usual right back spot.
In midfield, Fernandinho will assume the holding role, with Gundogan also likely to occupy a deeper midfield slot.
Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva should provide creativity further up the field, with Leroy Sane offering width and pace.
And With Sergio Aguero still out with a knee injury, Brazilian ace Gabriel Jesus will lead the line in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
Fernandinho, Gundogan and Danilo are one yellow card away from suspension.
