Team News:

Everton are in somewhat of a goalkeeping crisis with Jordan Pickford and Robin Olsen both still injured, so Joao Virginia will act as the last line of defence this weekend.

Abdoulaye Doucoure, James Rodriguez, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin remain out, so Ancelotti's hand is largely forced in midfield, although Gylfi Sigurdsson could replace Alex Iwobi in the number 10 role.

Yerry Mina and Seamus Coleman will both be holding out for recalls to the defence, while Joshua King is cup-tied but was never expected to earn a start over Richarlison or Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Everton possible starting lineup:
Virginia; Godfrey, Mina, Keane, Digne; Allan, Davies, Gomes; Sigurdsson; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin

Manchester City
With Nathan Ake now back in the squad and fully fit, Guardiola has no injury concerns at all for the quarter-final, so the Spaniard's infamous rotation is expected to strike again this week.

Zack Steffen could once again be handed an opportunity to impress in goal despite the calibre of their opponents, while Ake, Aymeric Laporte and Zinchenko - despite the latter's minor tiff with Guardiola - are all pushing for starts in defence as well.

Both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus only made the bench in the Champions League, so the former should be ready to start another game this weekend, while Raheem Sterling has dismissed rumours of a row with Guardiola and is also in contention to feature.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Steffen; Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Torres, Aguero, Sterling
