Kick Off

…and we are off!

Starting XI

Nathan Ake and Julian Alvarez are replaced by Aymeric Laporte and Kevin De Bruyne in the City XI. That means Bernardo Silva, Kyle Walker, Phil Foden and Joao Cancelo remain on what is a pretty strong bench.

Five changes from Julen Lopetegui as January arrival Mario Lemina starts in favour of Joao Moutinho. Max Kilman and Nelson Semedo take up their usual spots at the back at Toti and Dexter Lembikisa drop out.

Matheus Nunes and Hwang Hee-chan also start as recent signings Matheus Cunha and Pablo Sarabia make the bench.
