Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus have both been named in the Manchester City starting lineup for the Premier League fixture at Stoke City.

Sterling has been absent from a number of matches through injury while Jesus recently returned from a knee problem sustained over Christmas, but the attacking pair both feature in Pep Guardiola's side for the game in the Potteries.

Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho have also been selected, but Sergio Aguero is absent from the squad due to a minor knee injury.

Aymeric Laporte, Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva are the other three players to miss out having started the 1-0 win over Chelsea eight days ago.

As for Stoke, Paul Lambert makes just the one change, with Mame Biram Diouf being forced to miss Monday's fixture with a shoulder injury.

Jese Rodriguez has been brought into the team as his replacement as Stoke look to end a run of five matches without success.
