Gabriel Jesus is back in the starting line-up for City having returned and scored in the Champions League in midweek. Sergio Aguero remains out, as do Benjamin Mendy and Fernandinho.
Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota both start for Liverpool. Joel Matip also starts after missing the past two games, but Naby Keita and Thiago Alcantara are out injured.
Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne (c); Torres, Sterling, Jesus. Subs: Steffen, Stones, Ake, Zinchenko, Bernardo, Foden, Garcia.
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Gomez, Robertson; Henderson, Wijnaldum; Mane, Firmino, Jota; Salah. Subs: Milner, Keita, Adrian, Jones, Shaqiri, Origi, Phillips.
We expect goals here, but then again Liverpool are likely to field a more defensive-minded midfield while City are finding some defensive stability in that Dias-Laporte partnership. With that in mind we expect it to be a little cagier than some might think. Man City 1-0 Liverpool.
