Kevin De Bruyne (muscle) and Ilkay Gundogan (unknown) will be assessed before the visit of Liverpool after missing out on the victory over Southampton, with Pep Guardiola saying he “thinks” Gundogan will be available – but he appeared less certain on De Bruyne’s chances.

Leroy Sane looks a strong bet for a recall to the starting XI at the expense of Riyad Mahrez, while Kyle Walker could return at right-back to allow Danilo to shift over to the opposite flank – the Brazilian perhaps being more sound defensively than Oleksandr Zinchenko, who was culpable for Southampton’s equaliser on Sunday.

John Stones or Nicolas Otamendi will likely return at centre-back in place of Vincent Kompany, meanwhile.

Gabriel Jesus is an alternative to Sergio Aguero up front, but the Argentinean striker unquestionably poses the bigger goal threat in a game Guardiola said City need to win.
