Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola could afford the luxury of making six changes for his side’s Champions League last 16, second leg at home to Basel with the Premier League leaders holding a 4-0 first leg lead.
Sergio Aguero, Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva were among those to drop out of the side that beat Chelsea 1-0 on Sunday to edge ever closer to the Premier League title.
Gabriel Jesus takes Aguero’s place up front in his first start since injuring knee ligaments at Crystal Palace on New Years’ Eve.
Yaya Toure makes only his fifth start of the season in midfield, alongside 17-year-old Phil Foden.
Basel boss Raphael Wicky makes just two changes from the side vanquished on home soil three weeks ago with the suspended Taulant Xhaka and Valentin Stocker dropping out.
