Alisson, Fabinho and Sadio Mane all return to the Liverpool team, while the new signing Ozan Kabak is on the bench. Pep Guardiola, who usually does something funky at Anfield, has brought Phil Foden in for Gabriel Jesus. That means one of Foden, Raheem Sterling or Riyad Mahrez will play as a false nine.

Substitutes: Adrian, Kabak, Tsimikas, Phillips, N Williams, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Shaqiri, Origi.
