Manchester City and Aston Villa will battle it out for the first honours of the season on Sunday, as they go head-to in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday afternoon. 

City have been no strangers to silverware in recent years, and Guardiola and his side will be very keen to gain a trophy given Liverpool all-but confirmed this season’s Premier League winners.

Despite their opponents league position, it will not be a straightforward day for the Citizens, Villa will certainly put up a fight and won’t be afraid to attack Man City’s frail  injury-hit defence.

So which players will be tasked with the challenge of overcoming Aston Villa tomorrow? Here we predict Guardiola’s XI…

Goalkeeper: Guardiola has promised to select Claudio Bravo in goal for Sunday’s final, given the Spaniard has played all City’s League cup ties this season. Emerson is obviously first choice, but Bravo will get his chance.
