Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side look to edge closer to the Premier League title with just four more wins needed to make it impossible for rivals Manchester United to catch them.
The Blues are without Sergio Aguero, who faces a two-week lay-off with injury.
It will be a chance for Gabriel Jesus to prove his class again after his own stint on the sidelines through injury.
Paul Lambert’s side are desperate for the points and in the unlikely event that they can win tonight, they will leap outside of the relegation zone at the expense of Southampton – a draw will take them level on 28 points, but keep them in on goal difference.
