How Manchester City could line up against Paris Saint-Germain

Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Manchester City could line up for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final with Paris Saint-Germain.

Aside from the ill Eric Garcia, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is once again blessed with a fully-fit squad for the second leg of his side's Champions League semi-final with Paris Saint-Germain.

Boasting a 2-1 lead from the first leg at the Parc des Princes, City will welcome John Stones back to the fold amid his domestic suspension, and he should earn an immediate recall to the defence alongside Ruben Dias.

Aymeric Laporte and Nathan Ake paired up for the win over Crystal Palace but are expected to make way here, while Kyle Walker should return at right-back for Joao Cancelo, who did not enjoy a fruitful hour against PSG last week before being subbed off.

Oleksandr Zinchenko earned plaudits for his cameo in Paris so could be trusted from the first whistle here, while the veteran Fernandinho is set to make way for Ilkay Gundogan, who is fit and raring to go despite being on the end of Idrissa Gueye's red-card tackle in the first leg.

Bernardo Silva was given the day off at Selhurst Park so should resume his normal duties in the middle of the park here, and Guardiola is expected to complete a major reshuffle of his attacking contingent.

Sergio Aguero and Ferran Torres are both unlikely to start twice in a row despite netting on Saturday, as Phil Foden and last week's goalscorers Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne reprise their roles up top.

De Bruyne has now found the back of the net in three consecutive matches against PSG, and another goal against the Ligue 1 champions here would see him become just the second player in history - behind Neymar - to net four times in a row against PSG in the Champions League.

Man City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Zinchenko; Rodri, Gundogan, Silva; Mahrez, De Bruyne, Foden
