David Silva is a doubt after picking up a muscle problem against Southampton, while Phil Foden is suspended after his dismissal for a second bookable offence during our 5-1 victory two weeks ago.

Aymeric Laporte, Leroy Sane, Rodrigo and Oleksandr Zinchenko all remain sidelined with injury.


Striker, Duvan Zapata, is out with a muscle injury. Otherwise, Gian Piero Gasperini is expected to have a fully fit squad to choose from.

Pep Guardiola’s preview

“We are going to play with the best team as possible against Atalanta and after at Anfield. Nobody can assure me that if we don’t do what we have to do at Atalanta, we are going to make a better performance against Liverpool.

“The best way to face Atalanta is to play the way we did against Southampton, with the victory. The best way to go to Anfield is to play a good game against Atalanta, who for the last three seasons, have been fighting with the top clubs in Italy.

“That is the point. They can score five or six goals every game. We are going to play with the best team we believe, considering regeneration and considering the opponents."
