Pep Guardiola’s men will have to do without Kevin De Bruyne and Aymeric Laporte, both of whom are out due to illness. They were left out of the 22-man travelling squad, along with John Stones who is also ruled out. Guardiola said, “It is what it is. During the season, unfortunately sometimes that happens. They didn’t feel good right after the game against Nottingham [Forest]. Yesterday Aymer didn’t feel well. Other players are going to play. That happens sometimes.”
