The Belgian lined up alongside Ilkay Gundogan and Fernandinho for the midweek loss to West Ham, on penalties, after his side excelled against Brighton with Rodri and Bernardo Silva alongside Gundogan.
Embarrassed by City’s talent could therefore see De Bruyne back on the bench with Jack Grealish and Gabriel Jesus also hoping for callbacks after resting for the Carabao Cup.
This could result in a complete change in the top three, as Phil Foden is expected to come back on top, dropping Riyad Mahrez, Cole Palmer and Raheem Sterling on the bench.
At the back, Ederson, Aymeric Laporte and Ruben Dias have all been taken for the trip to the capital and are expected to return.
Oleksandr Zinchenko started at the cup’s left-back and Guardiola tipped the Ukrainian for more playing time in a pre-match hint that his regular full-backs will be turned, after Kyle Walker and Joao Cancelo had played 45 minutes each at West Ham.
“If we need him in the middle, he will play well,” said the coach. “He understands football very well, a huge personality, we are more than happy with the process. Kyle and Joao have been exceptional but it is a long season and we will need him.
Ferran Torres (foot) and Liam Delap (ankle) are excluded, as well as Benjamin Mendy (charge).
Man City XI planned: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Rodri, Silva, Gundogan; Jesus, Foden, Grealish.
