Manchester City XI v Burnley: Confirmed team news, predicted line-up and latest injury for today’s FA Cup
Pep Guardiola’s side are likely to take the clash against league leaders and former captain Vincent Kompany seriously, although changes are expected.
Julian Alvarez, who has just signed his new contract, could give Erling Haaland a rest while Kalvin Phillips and Phil Foden battle for the start.
Rico Lewis is an option for right-back with Kyle Walker possibly out. Sergio Gomez could also play at the opposite end, although a strong midfield is expected.
Stefan Ortega will almost certainly resume his role as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper in this competition.
Elsewhere, City aren’t expected to have many new injury worries ahead of the international break.
Manchester City XI prediction (4-3-3): Ortega; Lewis, Steine, Laporte, Gomez; Phillips, De Bruyne, Silva; Mahrez, Alvarez, Foden
Date and Time: Saturday, March 18 at 16:30 GMT
