Man City Team News: Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Everton

Everything you need to know ahead of the Premier League clash at Goodison Park on Wednesday

Manchester City will once again have close to a full complement of first-team players for their trip to Everton on Wednesday, meaning Pep Guardiola will be able to further experiment with his starting line-up.

The Catalan picked a midfield-heavy XI for the victory against Arsenal on Sunday, with Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Bernardo Silva all involved, while Fernandinho also stepped up to support from a centre-back position.

Few clubs in Europe are able to match that type of flexibility and Guardiola will have to use it to full effect as he prepares for games against Everton and Chelsea this week.

De Bruyne was substituted late on in the game on Sunday with what appeared to be cramp.

Benjamin Mendy again missed out on the squad as he aims to return from injury, and the best he can hope for is a place on the bench on Wednesday. Vincent Kompany remains out of action, however.

Claudio Bravo, meanwhile, is still out with an Achilles tendon injury.

Neither side have any suspensions.

Despite having mixed things up against Arsenal on Sunday, Guardiola could try a more traditional line-up, although there may be a temptation to use Aymeric Laporte as a left-sided defender again.

David Silva’s form has dipped recently and he could come out of the team, with Bernardo Silva potentially taking his position and Leroy Sane, who missed out at the weekend, coming back in.

Up front it is tempting to suggest Gabriel Jesus could start, but given Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick against Arsenal it seems only fair to include him from the off.

Leighton Baines is out after being taken off in the defeat against Wolves on Saturday, although Lucas Digne is now available again after serving a suspension.

Yerry Mina and Phil Jagielka have both missed matches recently and are also unavailable, while Idrissa Gueye is back for the Toffees.

Kick off is 19:45 GMT (14:45 ET) on Wednesday. It will not be shown on television in the United Kingdom. It will be shown on NBC in the United States, and on various channels around the world.
