Team notes

Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi have been selected to deal with Burnley's threat from set-pieces while the more experienced Danilo gets the nod over Zinchenko.

Ilkay Gundogan deputises for David Silva while John Stones is not fully fit.

Bernardo will again fill the attacking role Leroy Sane would normally fill.

Pep Guardiola has revealed injuries mean he can only name six subs for today's game with the EDS also in action last night.
