Club football is back in our lives, and with a bang. Manchester City have Everton, Barcelona and Southampton in a space of seven days, three very exciting matches to entertain us after two horrible weeks of international break.
Before Barça and Saints, Pep Guardiola has to worry about Everton. Really worry. The Toffees have enjoyed a very good start to the season under new manager Ronald Koeman, who wants his teams to play a similar style to Pep's, with high pressure along with lots of possession, speed and goals.
Koeman's side is very dangerous when fully healthy, and that will be the case this weekend. Apart from midfielder James McCarthy, who's yet to play this season, the Dutchman has every key player in his first team available for selection, including striker Romelu Lukaku and defenders Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines, three of the team's pillars.
Guardiola cannot say the same about his side, who's likely to miss its best player in Kevin De Bruyne, who will go through a late fitness test on Saturday but is very unlikely to even make the bench against Everton. He'll play at Camp Nou on Wednesday, but the Belgian will probably not be ready in time to return from injury this weekend. The same goes for captain Vincent Kompany, and two injuries happened in the international break: Bacary Sagna will miss the next three weeks, while Raheem Sterling has a calf problem.
No player from either side is suspended, and below is the list of players who are injury concerns for Saturday:
