Pep Guardiola has brought in Aymeric Laporte for Nathan Ake at centre-back against Chelsea.

Guardiola has made four changes at Stamford Bridge, with Rodri replacing Fernandinho and Kevin De Bruyne back for Ilkay Gundogan in midfield, and Phil Foden starting ahead of Raheem Sterling.

After playing his cards close to his chest this, Guardiola does have Stones, Laporte and Rodri available, with two of those players starting.

As expected, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gundogan are both missing.

Jack Grealish and Gabriel Jesus also start at Stamford Bridge.

Man City confirmed XI: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Foden, Rodri, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Jesus, Grealish.

Subs: Steffen, Stones, Ake, Sterling, Torres, Fernandinho, Mahrez, Palmer, Lavia.

Chelsea XI: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso Kante, Lukaku, Werner.

Subs: Kepa, Thiago Silva, Loftus-Cheek, Chalobah, Saul Niguez, Hudson-Odoi, Chilwell, Ziyech, Havertz.
