Man City vs. Norwich City: How Manchester City could line up

Manchester City is likely to have German reliable midfielder Ikay Gundogan available for selection against Norwich City despite the midfielder picked up a shoulder injury in the defeat to Tottenham Hotspurs.

Gundogan was expected to miss the Norwich fixture due to the injury, but tests have not proven the injury is that serious.

Phil Foden would be missing from the team sheet due to an ongoing foot issue but Kevin De Bruyne returned from injury to feature from the substitute bench against Tottenham.

He is expected to come straight into the starting line-up. De Bruyne could play from the middle, meaning he will take the place of Ferran Torres.

But Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez would operate from the wings for the Citizens.

Rodri might take the place of Brazil’s Fernandinho in midfield while new signing Jack Grealish could play in an advanced role (midfield) in a swift 4-2-3-1 formation dynamics.

Pep Guardiola could well make determine alterations, with Kyle Walker, John Stones and Oleksandr Zinchenko set the come in for Joao Cancelo, Nathan Ake and Benjamin Mendy.

Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus' are options in the attacking third. But the former is unsettled and strong linked with a move away from the club.

The Portuguese star could leave before the end of the summer transfer window as he is strongly linked with a move to Catalan giants Barcelona.

Manchester City possible starting lineup:

Ederson Moraes; Kyle Walker, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Oleksandr Zinchenko; Ikay Gundogan, Rodri; Riyad Mahrez, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling; Kevin De Bruyne.
