The Blues greet the European chasing Everton at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon, where the newly crowned champions will also take the Premier League trophy and bid farewell to top scorer Sergio Aguero.
Before the game and after the Champions League final was just days away, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola announced that he has a full-fledged squad – although he will get by without Joao Cancelo after the full-back is sent off in the 2 : 3 midweek loss to Brighton.
Despite initial concerns about Ilkay Gundogan, who had an ice pack strapped to his leg on Tuesday night, Pep Guardiola said in his pre-game press conference that “everyone is fit”.

Kyle Walker was not part of the Manchester City squad who traveled to Brighton on Tuesday with an injury and the Manchester City manager stated: “Kyle Walker couldn’t play Brighton because he had a twisted ankle with his kids.”
The right-back is expected to compete on Sunday.
Manchester City’s other injury concerns ahead of the final two games of the season were Sergio Aguero, who was struggling with another injury setback.
However, Pep Guardiola stated, “Sergio trained yesterday and today” as 10,000 fans hope to see him at the Etihad Stadium for the 192nd and final this weekend.
When asked if Sergio Aguero will play on Sunday afternoon, the Catalan replied: “Tomorrow we will decide. As much as he can play, he will play. He was disturbed. He had a partial training session and tomorrow we’ll make up our minds. “
Kevin De Bruyne was an unused substitute midweek after an injury, but Pep Guardiola told the press “the rest are fit” when he provided a fitness update on Kyle Walker and Sergio Aguero.
