Manchester City XI vs Leeds: Starting line-up, confirmed team news, injuries for Premier League today

Stones limped against Real Madrid in Tuesday’s Champions League thriller and it’s currently unclear whether or not he will be able to feature in the second leg next Wednesday.

Walker, meanwhile, is still suffering from an ankle problem.

On Friday, Guardiola said of the defender: “He’s injured – unfortunately for all of us and him in particular – but I’m not paying attention. He has to work to get back as soon as possible. I’m focused on the rest of the players.


With the away semi-final in Spain coming up midweek, Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne fall to the bench and are seemingly saved for this huge game.

Ilkay Gundogan, Nathan Ake, Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish all enter the squad, while Joao Cancelo returns after his suspension in Europe.

It’s a fine balancing act for City. Any mistake in the league could easily give Liverpool the title, but the players need a rest, with the Champions League naturally a key objective.

Starting XI: Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Ake, Rodri, Gundogan, Grealish, Jesus, Foden, Sterling

Subtitles: Steffen, Zinchenko, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Fernandinho, Mahrez, Egan-Riley, Mbete, McAtee
