For the host, Fernandinho remains a big doubt after picking up injury in Carabao Cup final. Raheem Sterling returned to training but remains a doubt as does Walker who was substituted at the Emirates with a knock in the second half.

Pep Guardiola said on Walker’s knock, “It was a problem at half time. He said he was going to play for five minutes and after that he kept going for longer.

“He had a problem with his calf and back and many, many places. That’s why in the last 15-20 minutes he was substituted. I don’t think he’s injured.”


Manchester City will be without suspended Fabian Delph, so John Stones and Aymeric Laporte will hope to benefit from here. Left-back Benjamin Mendy is still out.

For the visitors, Ross Barkley and Tiemoué Bakayoko are doubts for the weekend clash. David Luiz will be unavailable for the fixture.
