Phil Foden will start for Manchester City against Liverpool on Thursday evening, live on Sky Sports, with Eric Garcia also named in the starting XI.

Foden and Garcia come in as two of three changes from the 2-1 defeat at Chelsea last week, with Gabriel Jesus also in for Bernardo Silva. Riyad Mahrez drops to the bench, while Fernandinho is serving the second of his two-match ban for his sending off at Chelsea.

Garcia has been out since suffering a worrying head injury in the win over Arsenal on June 17.

Newly-crowned champions Liverpool are unchanged from their 4-0 win over Crystal Palace last week.
