Guardiola has a couple of injury concerns to deal with in defence. Nathan Ake and Ruben Dias had to be substituted due to problems during the victory over Peterborough. After the match, the City manager said: "Nathan finished bad in the action when he got the yellow card and Ruben was not feeling good in his leg. That's why, for caution and to be alert, we made the substitutions."
