FORM GUIDE

Pep Guardiola's side head into the game on the back of a superb run of form that has seen City go unbeaten in our last 16 games in all competitions and win our last nine games in a row.

Our last outing on Wednesday night saw us secure a crucial 2-0 win against Aston Villa at the Etihad which helped move us up into top briefly for the first time this season.
