Confirmed line-up Manchester City vs Sheffield United: De Bruyne on the bench

The line-up for this fixture is out, and the good news is that Kevin de Bruyne is on the bench for Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola has made two changes from the side that beat Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park on Wednesday.

It is the first time De Bruyne has made a matchday squad since August, when he was sidelined with a hamstring injury he picked up in City’s opening game of the season at Burnley.

Man City starting XI: Ederson, Walker, Ake, Akanji, Gvardiol, Rodri, Kovacic, Silva, Foden, Grealish, Alvarez

Subs: Ortega, Dias, Phillips, De Bruyne, Gomez, Nunes, Bobb, Lewis, Hamilton.

Sheffield Utd starting XI: Foderingham, Bogle, Baldock, Robinson, Trusty, Thomas, Norwood, Souza, Ben Slimane, Brooks, Osula

Subs: Davies, Brewster, McBurnie, Archer, Traore, Osborn, Larouci, Norrington-Davies, Seriki.
