Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Manchester City could line up for Saturday's Premier League clash with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has no fresh injury concerns to work around for Saturday's Premier League battle with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Premier League champions continue to make do without Ferran Torres as he battles his way back from a foot fracture, while John Stones is a slight doubt after missing the Champions League win over Club Brugge due to personal issues.

With an EFL Cup clash against West Ham United to come, Guardiola may elect to save most of his changes for that midweek game, as Aymeric Laporte and Ruben Dias continue in the heart of defence.

Joao Cancelo and Kyle Walker ought to keep their spots in a strong backline against the high-flying Seagulls, although Oleksandr Zinchenko is now back fit and pushing for inclusion.

Bernardo Silva was taken off after 57 minutes against Brugge and should therefore be fine to go again from the first whistle here, although Ilkay Gundogan will somehow hope to force his way back into the midfield.

Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne are both set to retain their spots in the engine room, while Torres's absence could see Phil Foden continue to act as the focal point of the Citizens' attack.

Riyad Mahrez will not want to be dropped after bagging a brace in midweek, and Jack Grealish could once again get the nod over the out-of-favour Raheem Sterling, who spurned several opportunities to make the net ripple in Belgium.

Man City possible starting lineup: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Foden, Grealish
