Pep Guardiola makes FIVE changes from the side that beat Southampton earlier this week in the Premier League. Joao Cancelo comes in at right-back for Kyle Walker, despite his heroics at the weekend. Benjamin Mendy replaces Angelino at left-back while John Stones is replaced by Nicolas Otamendi in the heart of defence.

As for the midfield, Ilkay Gundogan retains his place in the number six role, while Bernardo Silva drops into midfield for David Silva – lining up alongside Kevin De Bruyne.

The attacking three sees Sergio Aguero drop to the bench with Gabriel Jesus lining up front for the blues – potentially revealing who will be lining up front at Anfield on Sunday. Riyad Mahrez comes into the attack with Raheem Sterling on the other flank.

SUBS: Bravo, Walker, Stones, Garcia, Angelino, Doyle, Aguero.
