Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola now has most of his squad back available following the virus outbreak among the first team earlier this month.

Five players are, though, still expected to be missing for tomorrow night’s game against Brighton. Aymeric Laporte (hamstring) and Nathan Ake (muscular) are ruled out due to injury, and Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia and Cole Palmer are still self-isolating. Raheem Sterling is believed to be available after being rested for the FA Cup victory against Birmingham on Sunday.

Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Face Brighton:

Ederson, Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko, De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan, Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Sterling

Seagulls boss Graham Potter has fitness doubts over five players including Danny Welbeck (knee), Adam Lallana (illness), Alireza Jahanbakhsh (knock), Steven Alzate (illness) and Aaron Connolly (hamstring).

Tariq Lamptey (hamstring), Jose Izquierdo (thigh) and Florin Andone (knee) are all unavailable while Yve Bissouma is suspended after picking up five yellow cards this season.

Brighton’s Predicted XI:

Sanchez, Veltman, Webster, Dunk, Burn, March, White, Propper, Gross, Maupay, Trossard
