How Manchester City could line up against Leeds United

Manchester City will have to make do without the suspended Joao Cancelo for Tuesday’s Premier League meeting with Leeds United.

The Portuguese full-back picked up his fifth booking of the league season in Saturday’s win over Wolverhampton Wanderers and will take his place on the naughty step at the Etihad Stadium.

Ilkay Gundogan has also emerged as a major doubt due to back pain, while Ferran Torres represents the champions’ other injury concern with his foot fracture.

Kyle Walker was an unused substitute at the weekend but is sure to come back in with Cancelo suspended, meaning that Oleksandr Zinchenko should hold his place in the XI.

Aymeric Laporte and Ruben Dias will aim to continue at the back despite pressure from John Stones, with Nathan Ake fit enough to make the bench at the weekend.

Kevin De Bruyne will expect to return to the first XI due to Gundogan’s back pain, while Rodri and Bernardo Silva could both hold their places.

It would not be surprising to see Pep Guardiola make some alterations in attack, with Premier League 100-club member Raheem Sterling holding his place as Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez provide fresh legs up top.

Man City possible starting lineup: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Rodri, Silva; Mahrez, Sterling, Foden
