Elderson has been a player with little accolades among City favorites but his influence in results has been impeccable. The Brazilian has helped City remain top of the league and he has another target which is to be keep a clean sheet in this match.
The injury to Vincent Kompany means that the preferred partnership for Pep Guadiola at the heart if defence for now is John Stones and Nicholas Otamendi.

Fabian Delph looks comfortable in his new left back position while Kyle Walker will hold down the right full back.

The duo of Kelvin De Bruyne and David Silva makes it very creative an share the creative positions between themselves. Whenever either or both starts together this season, City are never short of ideas on what to do with the ball. No wonder they are still unbeaten in the league.
The injury to Raheem Sterling means that Bernardo Silva will be trusted by Guardiola to take his place in the team. He will be playing from the right tacking side while Leroy Sane will be terrorising the right wing. Sergio Aguero is expected to continue in his goalscoring prowess against Burnley especially when Gabriel Jesus is out injured.
