Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus have both been handed a place in the Manchester City starting lineup for the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie with Basel.
City were able to record a 4-0 victory in the first leg in Switzerland, and their success has given Pep Guardiola enough margin for error to make sweeping changes to his team.
Teenager Foden makes his third start of the campaign in all competitions, while Gabriel Jesus makes his first start since recovering from a knee injury.
Yaya Toure is also given a rare outing in midfield, while John Stones features in the centre of defence for the first time in over two weeks.
In the event of an unlikely comeback from Basel, Guardiola has Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero both in reserve on the substitutes' bench.
The visitors are without Taulant Xhaka for the match this evening as the 26-year-old, who is the brother of Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka, is suspended.
Dimitri Oberlin has retained his position as the focal point of attack, while Kevin Bua and Mohamed Elyounoussi have also been selected to cause problems in the final third.
Manchester City: Bravo; Danilo, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko; Gundogan, Toure; Foden, B.Silva, Sane; Jesus
