Manager Pep Guardiola opted for his usual 4-3-3 formation. Goalkeeper Ederson was covered by Aymeric Laporte and Ruben Diaz in the defence. Joao Cancelo and Kyle Walker were the two fullbacks. Bernardo Silva, Rodrigo and Ilkay Gundogan occupied the three midfield slots. Gabriel Jesus and Ferran Torres switched positions amongst them supported by Jack Grealish on the left-wing.
