“Kevin is progressing well. He’s not fit for tomorrow but he’s progressing well. The official doctor told me that he is doing well in that perspective,” Guardiola said.

Manchester City starting XI

Guardiola dropped forward Leroy Sane and the German player is struggling for form. Guardiola may re-call Sane for Fulham’s visit.

Danilo has returned to training, but his participation in Saturday’s fixture will be determined prior to kick off.

Guardiola is expected to play an attacking three of Sterling, Sergio Aguero, and Bernardo Silva. Sane and summer signing Riyad Mahrez will begin on the bench. Mahrez has struggled to fit in at Manchester City this season.

David Silva, Fernandinho, and Ilkay Gundogan will most likely be selected in midfield. Meanwhile, Guardiola is expected to deploy Aymeric Laporte, John Stones, Kyle Walker, and Benjamin Mendy in defence. Ederson will once again man the Manchester City goal.

Guardiola doesn’t have any suspension to worry about as aim for three fourth win. If results go their way, Manchester City could end Saturday on top of the table.
