The likes of Nathan Ake, Sergio Gomez, Rico Lewis and Matheus Nunes all came off the bench during the win at West Ham, and could be afforded starts against the Serbians, who are also known as FK Crvena zvezda.
Stefan Ortega is another looking for minutes, though Ederson was first-choice in the Champions League last season.
John Stones, Jack Grealish and Mateo Kovacic are all still out. Stones has been out since the Community Shield, Grealish suffered a knock prior to the recent international break and Kovacic suffered a problem while away with Croatia this month.
Manager Pep Guardiola said at a press conference: “They are getting better, not for tomorrow. [Kovacic and Grealish can play] hopefully [against] Nottingham or the next games.
“We need them soon, we need Jack to compete with Jeremy [Doku], the feeling to play has to be good to be in the squad.”
Predicted Manchester City XI: Ederson; Walker, Akanji, Ake, Lewis; Rodri, Nunes; Foden, Alvarez, Doku; Haaland
Injured: Stones, Grealish, Kovacic, De Bruyne
Time and date: 8pm, Tuesday September 19, 2023
