For Manchester City, manager Pep Guardiola has named an unchanged starting lineup for the trip, but fit-again midfield general Kevin De Bruyne has been included amongst the substitutes.
De Bruyne returns to the matchday squad after missing the last two games for an injury picked up on international duty. Guardiola said he’s happy with the production of his team in the last outing, and so he keeps faith with the side that beat Porto 3-1 in the Champions League in midweek.
This means there is no place for Nathan Ake or Aymeric Laporte in the heart of the defence, with Eric Garcia and Rúben Dias keeping their places.

However, new signing Said Benrahma does not make the substitutes bench.
