Sports Mole looks at how Manchester City could line up in Saturday's Premier League clash with Burnley.

Manchester City will be looking to return to winning ways when they welcome Burnley to the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola's side suffered their seventh league defeat of the season away to Manchester United last weekend, going down 2-0 to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side at Old Trafford.

The Citizens, who remain second in the table, had been due to face Arsenal on Wednesday night but concerns over the coronavirus outbreak saw the top-flight fixture postponed.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how City could line up against the Clarets this weekend.

Out: Leroy Sane (knee)
Doubtful: Aymeric Laporte (hamstring), Kevin De Bruyne (shoulder), Sergio Aguero (thigh)

City were without both Kevin De Bruyne and Aymeric Laporte at Old Trafford due to shoulder and hamstring injuries respectively, but the pair are expected to be ready for this weekend's contest.

Sergio Aguero should also overcome the thigh problem that he picked up against Man United, although Guardiola could make changes in attack with Gabriel Jesus potentially coming into the side.

Riyad Mahrez, Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and David Silva are also in line for recalls, meaning that the likes of Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancelo, Ilkay Gundogan and Alexander Zinchenko could all drop out.

Raheem Sterling should keep his spot in the final third despite failing to score a Premier League goal in 2020, while Rodri is expected to continue in the middle of the park.

Leroy Sane continues to make progress in his recovery from a knee operation, but the Germany international will not be considered for the clash with Sean Dyche's side.
