Team News:

Manchester City
Man City have virtually a clean bill of health following the returns of Fernandinho and Benjamin Mendy in midweek, with Nathan Ake their only doubt due to a hamstring injury, although he too is now back in training.

Guardiola is expected to make changes to the starting lineup from Wednesday, though, with Kevin De Bruyne, Kyle Walker, Aymeric Laporte, Ferran Torres and Riyad Mahrez among those pushing for a recall.

Fit-again Sergio Aguero could lead the line having scored nine goals in his last nine appearances against Burnley across all competitions, while Phil Foden will be hoping that his winner in Athens earns him another start.

The England international has now scored five goals and created two more in his 10 starts for club and country this season, yet has found himself out of favour in Premier League games recently.

Guardiola must also decide whether to stick with the 4-2-3-1 formation he used in midweek or to return to a 4-3-3.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Mendy; Fernandinho, Rodri; Torres, De Bruyne, Sterling; Aguero

Burnley, meanwhile, have suffered a major blow with the news that Nick Pope is unlikely to feature after receiving a knock to his head on Monday night.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell is expected to replace the England man in goal, while Dyche revealed that Robbie Brady and Dale Stephens are also likely to miss out. Jack Cork remains a longer-term absentee.
Burnley possible starting lineup:
Peacock-Farrell; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil; Wood, Rodriguez
Burnley Premier League form: LDLLDW

Prediction: Manchester City 2-0 Burnley
