Fernandinho will hope to return to the Manchester City starting line-up after being sidelined since the Manchester derby win over United due to a knee injury.

Kevin De Bruyne could return to the first XI after coming on as a late substitute on the final day of the Premier League season having recovered from a hamstring issue.

Vincent Kompany is expected to play in what could be the final competitive appearance of his 11-year City career, but Benjamin Mendy recently returned to Barcelona for further treatment on a lingering knee problem.

Claudio Bravo (Achilles) remains a long-term absentee.
