How will the teams line up?
Steven Bergwijn is available for selection after missing the win at West Brom before the international break through injury.
Jose Mourinho has said that Erik Lamela, who also missed out through injury at the Hawthorns, is on the “last period of his recovery” while Harry Winks has returned from international duty “with a little problem.” Matt Doherty continues to self-isolate after testing positive for coronavirus while with the Republic of Ireland.
Fernandinho is set to miss out for Manchester City because of a stomach problem, but Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling are back from injury and could play a part.
Remembering Ray Clemence
Saturday’s fixture will be dedicated to the memory of legendary former goalkeeper Ray Clemence, who passed away peacefully on Sunday following a long battle with illness.
The team will wear black armbands during the match, with a minute’s applause held prior to kick-off.
We'll also be raising awareness of Prostate Cancer UK – a charity for whom Ray was an ambassador as he battled with a disease that claims the life of one man every 45 minutes in the UK. Our team will warm-up in special edition t-shirts featuring the charity’s logo, with Ray’s iconic name and number on the back. Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff will wear Prostate Cancer UK’s familiar ‘Man of Men’ pin badges, with the charity’s logo also on the front cover of our matchday programme. Further tributes to Ray will feature inside the programme and on N17 Live.
Who is the referee and what colours will the teams be playing in?
Mike Dean is Saturday’s match referee, assisted by Darren Cann and Dan Robathan. Andy Madley serves as the fourth official.
We’ll be in our usual home kit with our goalkeeper in orange, while City are due to wear their dark blue away kit, which features gold trim. Their goalkeeper will be in light green.
