Pep Guardiola could welcome back some key players for Manchester City’s Premier League clash with Norwich City on Saturday.
The champions began their title defence in disappointing fashion, falling 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur in London last weekend.
Kyle Walker, John Stones and Aymeric Laporte all watched the defeat from the bench and could be hoping to make their first appearances of the season.
Benjamin Mendy and Nathan Ake could drop out of the starting XI to allow Walker and Stones a place each, but Laporte is likely to remain on the bench.
Oleksandr Zinchenko also sat on the bench for the entirety of City’s outing in London, and could come in to an almost entirely changed back four in place of Joao Cancelo. Only Cancelo’s compatriot, Ruben Dias, would keep his place.
The midfield should go unchanged, with new record signing Jack Grealish set for a home debut alongside Ilkay Gundogan and Fernandinho. Gundogan suffered a minor knock to his shoulder against Spurs, but should be ok to start again.
Phil Foden remains an injury absentee, and Kevin De Bruyne is still short of 100% fitness and should be ready from the bench if needed.
With a deal for Harry Kane still as up in the air as it ever has been, much conjecture surrounds City’s options in the No.9 position.
Gabriel Jesus came off the bench against Spurs and failed to stamp his authority on the match, but he could still earn a start this weekend in place of Ferran Torres.
Raheem Sterling is likely to be called upon once again to play on the left wing, with Riyad Mahrez set to remain in place on the right.
