Pep Guardiola makes seven changes from the side that beat Southampton earlier this week in the Carabao Cup. Ederson retained his place between the sticks as usual, while there are two changes in the back-four – John Stones and Fernandinho are the centre-back pairing, replacing Nicolas Otamendi and Eric Garcia.
