Team News:

Guardiola will most likely have to make do without both recognised strikers in Aguero and Jesus once again, meaning that Torres can look forward to another start up top, although Jesus is getting closer to a return and has a slim chance of being involved.

Defensive duo Fernandinho and Benjamin Mendy both remain on the treatment table, but Nathan Ake returned from injury to make the bench at Bramall Lane and could be in line for a start here.

Gundogan and Phil Foden should also come back into the first XI as Guardiola looks to keep his players fresh, with Eric Garcia and Oleksandr Zinchenko potentially set for recalls to the defence.

As for Olympiacos, Martins will be without a trio of players owing to coronavirus cases, with Mady Camara, Ousseynou Ba, and Hillal Soudani returning positive tests over the past week.

Hassan may drop to the bench despite his brace at the weekend, with Youssef El Arabi, Mathieu Valbuena and Yann M'Vila all likely to come back into the first XI.

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Cancelo, Garcia, Ake, Zinchenko; Rodri, Gundogan, Silva; Mahrez, Torres, Foden

Olympiacos possible starting lineup:
Sa; Rafinha, Semedo, Cisse, Vinagre; M'Vila, Bouchalakis; Randjelovic, Valbuena, Masouras; El Arabi
