Although first-choice goalkeeper Ederson is "much better" and may start again in goal, the manager of Manchester City has ruled out England's Kyle Walker and John Stones. Meanwhile, Manuel Akanji, who withdrew from his Switzerland duties, is also doing well.
Regarding the knock that Matheus Nunes sustained while serving in Portugal, there was no update. However, Kevin De Bruyne, who has eight goals and five assists in 20 appearances versus Arsenal, has trained "really well" and is anticipated to be cleared to play. 
Jack Grealish is also back to full fitness, but the Englishman should be content to start on the bench.

Arsenal Team News
Over the international break, several of Arsenal's most important players disappeared as well. Gabriel Magalhaes, a defender from Brazil, and Bukayo Saka, a winger from England, both left their national teams before a match.
Gabriel Martinelli, who scored Arsenal's only goal in their October victory over Man City, was already listed as being absent due to a foot injury. However, Arteta is optimistic that all three players will be able to recover in time to return to their regular starting positions; he stated on Friday that there was a "chance" for all three of them.
Jurrien Timber, the victim of the ACL, may be the only player missing from the team; however, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Thomas Partey are anticipated to be available following their friendly match against Queens Park Rangers during the international break. The Dutchman is expected to make another appearance before the season ends.
