City are looking to add a fifth consecutive win in all competitions and are undoubtedly the form team here, with Leipzig a little all over the place when it comes to recent results.

Team News:

Man City:

Phil Foden gave fans a scare by revealing he had hurt his foot, although the England international shook that off to play an hour against Crystal Palace and should be raring to go for this one.

RB Leipzig:

Christopher Nkunku is back on the sidelines after picking up a hamstring injury, going off in this month's loss to Dortmund in which Xaver Schlager suffered what could be a season-ending injury of his own.

Peter Gulacsi and Abdou Diallo remain out.
