Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has included keeper Ederson in the starting team in their clash against Club Brugge tonight.
Ederson was one of the players who missed City's weekend win over Burnley with the Brazilian having arrived late for the league game following his involvement with his national team earlier on Friday.
As well as Ederson, Jesus returns but can only be accorded a place with the bench with another change in the team seeing defender John Stones place in the starting team taken by Ruben Dias who will partner Laporte.
Brugge have proven impressive thus far. Joint-top of the Jupiler Pro League after 11 games, they’re unbeaten in Europe, having drawn with PSG and beaten RB Leipzig.
Club Brugge Starting XI: Mignolet; Mata, Hendry, N’Soki; Sobol, Rits, Balanta, Vanaken, Sowah; Lang, De Ketelaere.
Subs: Maouassa, Ricca, Izquierdo, Vormer, van der Brempt, Dost, Mechele, Mbamba, Lammens.
Manchester City starting XI: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Rodrigo, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Foden, Mahrez, Grealish
Subs: Steffen, Carson, Ake, Sterling, Gundogan, Jesus, Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Palmer.
