Manchester City return to Premier League action following the conclusion of the summer transfer window and the arrival of Matheus Nunes from Wolves.
Pep Guardiola’s side come into the contest off the back of yet another victory this season, overcoming a stern test at Bramall Lane and recovering from a late Sheffield United equaliser through a sublime late winner from Rodrigo.
Manchester City remain the only team to have won all of their opening Premier League fixtures so far this season, and could return to the top of the table this weekend with a win over Marco Silva’s Fulham.
Juanma Lillo will assume touchline responsibilities once again on Saturday afternoon, as Pep Guardiola continues to recover from back surgery in Barcelona, while Kevin De Bruyne remains sidelined following a hamstring operation.
Manuel Akanji and Phil Foden are expected to be fully-fit for the contest at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon, while John Stones is said to be improving following a training ground injury last month.
