KICK-OFF: At the Etihad Stadium
KICK-OFF: At Carrow Road!
Marcelo Bielsa has arranged his side in a 4-2-3-1 formation in an attempt to frustrate the hosts and also pick up an unlikely result at the Etihad.
Spanish gaffer Pep Guardiola has named England defender John Stones in the side to face Leeds United in place of the suspended Joao Cancelo. Kevin de Bruyne returns to the midfield setup to make his first Premier League start since their 2-0 win at Old Trafford on the 6th of November. Ilkay Gundogan, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus all settle for a place on the bench.
Elsewhere at the Etihad Stadium, table toppers Manchester City will take on Marcelo Bielsa and his Leeds United side – who are still reeling from their narrow 3-2 defeat away to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend.
MANCHESTER CITY VS LEEDS UNITED:
Meanwhile, coach Steven Gerrard has named his official Starting XI for tonight’s tie.
Norwich boss Dean Smith has filed out in a 4-1-2-3 formation system and has made four alterations to the side which lost 1-0 to Manchester United on Saturday – with the injured Grant Hanley replaced by Ben Gibson while Dimitris Giannoulis, Lukas Rupp and Josh Sargent comes in for Brandon Williams, Jacob Sorensen and Todd Cantwell respectively.
The basement boys will have to conjure up something in order to earn all three points on the night, even though that will be difficult against a resolute Villa side led by Steven Gerrard.
