Man City v FC Basel – Probable lineups – Pep Guardiola set to rotate starting XI

Manchester City take on FC Basel this week as they look to book their place in the next round of the UEFA Champions League.

The Citizens come into the game in a confident mood following their recent run of form. City have won their last three games, including back-to-back victories over Arsenal.

Wednesday night’s encounter takes place at the Etihad Stadium while kick-off is scheduled for 19:45 (GMT).

Guardiola could opt to reset several of his star names and rotate his squad following City’s comfortable 4-0 win over FC Basel in Switzerland a fortnight ago.

Star playmaker Ilkay Gundogan has been in impressive form for the Citizens in recent weeks and has established himself as a key member of Guardiola’s starting eleven.

The Germany international has been playing a defensive midfielder role in Fernandino’s absence.
