Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Cancelo; Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne; B. Silva, Foden, Grealish
Ruben Dias will miss the match through injury while Kyle Walker should return to the line-up after his European ban. John Stones and Aymeric Laporte will be the starting centre-backs with Joao Cancelo retaining his berth as left back. Up front, Guardiola could opt for control over a more explosive attack, with Bernardo Silva a possibility to lead the line if Ilkay Gundogan is brought back into the engine room. Phil Foden and Jack Grealish will probably complete the front trio. Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Gabriel Jesus provides further alternatives.
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Mane, Diaz
Luis Diaz should get the nod over Diogo Jota for a berth in the front trio, alongside Sadio Manè and Mo Salah. In midfield, Jordan Henderson is expected to earn a recall over Naby Keita, while Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho are favourites over Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott for the remaining places. At the back, Joel Matip is likely to partner Virgil Van Dijk at the heart of the defense, with Ibrahima Konate a viable alternative.
