Team News

Manchester City
Guardiola will be forced to make do without key man Kevin De Bruyne once again - the Belgium international missed out the win over Arsenal and is expected to remain sidelined for another couple of weeks.

Defensive duo Aymeric Laporte, Benjamin Mendy are also all in the medical room, while Sergio Aguero, who recently returned from an injury of his own, will continue to lead the line in the absence of Gabriel Jesus.

Guardiola opted for an unorthodox 3-1-4-2 against the Gunners but may revert back to his tried-and-tested 4-3-3 here, with Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres both in contention to start should the City manager look to freshen things up, while Oleksandr Zinchenko is also available having recovered from injury.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Dias, Ake, Cancelo; Rodri, Gundogan, Foden; Torres, Aguero, Sterling
Manchester City form (all competitions): WWLWDW

As for the visitors, Conceicao only has two absentees to contend with in the forms of Ivan Marcano and Mouhamed Mbaye, both of whom are nursing ACL injuries.

West Ham United loanee Felipe Anderson is set for a quick return to English surroundings and will look to start on the left-hand side, with Corona and Moussa Marega completing the front three.
Porto possible starting lineup:
Marchesin; Manafa, Mbemba, Pepe, Sanusi; Oliveira, Otavio, Uribe; Corona, Marega, Anderson
Porto form (all competitions): WWWLD

Prediction: Manchester City 3-1 Porto
