Man City Team News
Guardiola has some injury concerns to deal with going into the derby. However, the latest developments have the injury situtation not as bad as initially considered. Haaland picked up an ankle injury on duty for Norway and was ruled out for the match against Liverpool at first. However, he is now expected to play with a 75% chance of featuring. Ederson also picked up a knock on international duty for Brazi, but he too, is expected to play.
The major injury doubts for City are Nathan Ake and Matheus Nunes, altough Ake was pictured training with the squad yesterday, as you can see from City’s official Twitter feed. However, the players that will certainly miss the game for the Citizens are Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones, Mateo Kovacic and Sergio Gomez.

Liverpool Team News
Going into this clash, Jurgen Klopp won’t be able to rely on the services of starting left-back Andy Robertson, who remains out with a shoulder injury. However, the good news for the Reds is that Ryan Gravenberch, Curtis Jones, Ibrahima Konate and Joe Gomez are all expected to be available this weekend. All four skipped international duties and trained at Melwood, and have now fully recovered from their respctive knocks. These are the rare times when the international break can help teams as some injured or non-called up players can use these off days to recover.
The long-term injuries for Liverpool are Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajcetic. However, the Reds have reinforced their midfield over the summer, and Szoboszlai has settled in quite nicely. Szobo was also in top form for Hungary this past week. Also, Tsimikas has played quite well in recent games, recording several assists, so the absence of Andy Robertson should not be felt.
