Odion Ighalo scored twice against Derby to make it three goals in two starts since joining but may only make the bench here.

Axel Tuanzebe returned to the matchday squad against Derby after a lengthy spell out.

Manchester City– Pep Guardiola has revealed Kevin De Bruyne is a serious doubt for Sunday’s Manchester derby with a shoulder injury. There is still hope he will be okay to feature but may only make the bench.
