Brighton Team News
Brighton defender Adam Webster has a “outside chance” of being fit for this match, while Danny Welbeck and Steven Alzate are still unavailable.
After brushing off a minor niggle to make the bench against Norwich, Yves Bissouma should fight for a recall, while Tariq Lamptey replaced Joel Veltman after 59 minutes last time out and will look to force his way back into the starting lineup here.
Despite Norwich’s lack of ruthlessness, Potter is unlikely to change the Neal Maupay-Leandro Trossard partnership in the final third.
Manchester City Team News
Meanwhile, City’s only injury absentee is striker Ferran Torres, who is recovering from a foot fracture, but Guardiola has plenty of options for rotation on the South Coast.
However, John Stones is a slight doubt after missing the Brugge win owing to personal circumstances, and Guardiola may want to save the most of his lineup for their EFL Cup clash with West Ham United in midweek.
If that is the case, Phil Foden can expect another start in the heart of the attack, but Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan will be hoping to push their way back into the starting XI nonetheless.
Sanchez; Dunk, Duffy, Burn; Veltman, Gross, Bissouma, Lallana, Cucurella; Maupay, Trossard
Manchester City XI:
Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Foden, Grealish
