Coming off Tuesday's landmark 3-1 victory against Barcelona in Champions League the Blues remain at home to face Middlesbrough at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 3pm BST.

Former City title-winning striker Alvaro Negredo leads the line for Boro while Pep Guardiola will be reunited with former Barcelona netminder Victor Valdes who now starts for the Teeside outfit. İlkay Gündoğan will be looking to continue his vein run of form which has seen the central midfielder score four times in the Blues last two competitive matches. Meanwhile, Boro will look to pull away from the relegation zone.

Manchester City currently sits atop the Premier League but the gap between first and fifth is just three points, with the top five pulling away from the rest of the division in recent weeks. The video below from NBC Sports is playable in the United States only.
