How we expect Man City to lineup against Liverpool

The pair are not expected to return to action until after the international break, but Pep Guardiola has been boosted by the returns of key men in midfield and defence over the last week or so.

Phil Foden came off the substitutes’ bench during the 2-0 defeat to PSG in the Champions League in midweek and could make his first Premier League start of the campaign.

“The way we played the last two games makes me so satisfied… when we won the league I’m happy but in this period when we’ve played injured and Foden and [Kevin] De Bruyne trained for just two weeks, the level and consistency is so good.”

At the back, John Stones has so far had to wait for his chance to resume his partnership with Ruben Dias at the heart of the defence after a delayed start to the season, with Aymeric Laporte seemingly the man in possession at the moment.

Man City predicted XI: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Rodri, Bernardo, De Bruyne, Foden, Jesus, Grealish
