Fulham's only injury concern is with midfielder Harrison Reed, who missed the draw with Brentford due to a knock, but he has since taken part in training and could be fit to return to the matchday squad.

If Reed is not deemed fit to start, then Sasa Lukic could be tasked with playing alongside Joao Palhinha in centre-midfield, while Alex Iwobi operates further forward along with Andreas Pereira and Willian.

Former Man City youngster Tosin Adarabioyo has been left out of the Fulham squad for the last two games after reportedly turning down a contract extension, and he may have already played his final game for the club as his current deal expires in June.

Issa Diop and Calvin Bassey are set to continue in central defence as a result, while in attack, Rodrigo Muniz has scored seven of his nine Premier League goals at Craven Cottage this season and is expected to lead the line once again.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Castagne, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Palhinha, Lukic; Iwobi, Pereira, Willian; Muniz

Man City, they are set to have a clean bill of health for Saturday's game, so Guardiola will have a fully-fit squad to choose from.

Ederson recovered from a minor shoulder problem to start last weekend and is expected to continue in goal, while Ruben Dias recovered from illness to make the matchday squad and will be pushing for a recall in central defence along with John Stones.

Phil Foden also recovered from illness last time out and is ready to start in attack against Fulham; the Englishman could continue next to Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva, but both Jeremy Doku and Jack Grealish will be hoping to force their way back into the first XI.

Alvarez is another attacker at Guardiola's disposal, but he is not expected to displace City's goal machine Haaland, who scored a hat-trick in the reverse fixture against Fulham.

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Akanji, Ake, Gvardiol; Rodri, Kovacic; Bernardo, De Bruyne, Foden; Haaland
