Subs: Bravo, Yaya Toure, Gundogan, Adarabioyo, Kompany, Danilo, Diaz

Bernardo on wing duty

Bernardo Silva will look to continue where he left off against Cardiff where he enjoyed his best game yet for City.

With Leroy Sane out for several weeks, Bernardo has a chance for a sustained run in the side.

He proved he can whip a mean cross in as he set up Raheem Sterling's goal as well as seeing what seemed a perfectly good goal ruled out with another left foot howitzer.

 

CONTROVERSY: Bernardo Silva reacts to seeing his thunderous effort ruled out for a questionable offside flag.
