Pep Guardiola is desperate for his side to get back on track, after dropping points in their last Premier League game and being held by David Moyes West Ham,
Sheffield United were the surprise package of last season’s campaign, but have struggled so far this time around and are still in search of a first victory of the season.
Follow all the coverage live with Sportsmail’s Danny Gallagher, who will provide updates of every twist and turn from Bramall Lane.
Guardiola hasn’t been a happy man recently and it’s easy to see why.
The City boss remains without Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho and Benjamin Mendy.
Nathan Ake has made the bench today, though has struggled for most of the week with a thigh issue and is not expected to feature.
It’s a strong line up for the hosts, who are boosted by the return of Max Lowe, who is back after missing the trip to Anfield with concussion.
He replaces John Lundstram who drops to the bench.
Starting XI: Ramsdale; Baldock, Basham, Egan (c), Stevens, Lowe; Berge, Ampadu, Osborn; McBurnie, Brewster
Subs: Verrips, Sharp, Lundstram, Burke, McGoldrick, Robinson, Norwood
De Bruyne captains the side for the visitors, as summer signing Ferran Torres starts in the forward line.
Starting XI: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Rodrigo, De Bruyne (C), Bernardo Silva, Torres, Mahrez, Sterling.
Subs: Carson, Stones, Ake, Gundogan, Zinchenko, Foden, Garcia

Here’s hoping for an explosive encounter to start the day’s football with a little zest. Team news coming up in just a moment…
