They are the only three changes to the side that beat Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night, with Nathan Ake, Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez moving to the bench.
Bernardo and Foden made a big impact as second-half substitutes in that win and will feature from the first whistle today.
Wolves v City | Match Preview
Dias sat out that match, but takes his place at the heart of the defence alongside Manuel Akanji at Molineux. It’s a Premier League debut for Akanji, who has been assured in his two Champions League fixtures since joining the Club.
City are looking for a fifth victory in seven Premier League matches so far this season as we build a foundation for the defence of our title.
City XI: Ederson, Stones, Dias, Akanji, Cancelo, Rodrigo, De Bruyne (C), Bernardo, Foden, Grealish, Haaland
Subs: Ortega Moreno, Carson, Walker, Ake, Gundogan, Alvarez, Gomez, Mahrez, Palmer
Wolves XI: Sa, Jonny, Collins, Kilman, Ait-Nouri, Neves (C), Nunes, Moutinho, Guedes, Neto, Podence
Subs: Sarkic, Traore, Hwang, Mosquera, Semedo, Toti, Ronan, Bueno, Campbell
Ederson takes up his role between the sticks, with a defence of John Stones, Manuel Akanji, Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo in front of him. Stones is expected to continue on the right, the position from which he scored Wednesday night’s equaliser.
Rodrigo remains at the base of the midfield, a position he has made his own. Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva will play either side of the Spaniard. Phil Foden should start on the right of the front three and Jack Grealish on the left, with Erling Haaland through the middle.
Our hosts will set up in a 4-3-3, with an entirely Portuguese front six. The midfield of Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Matheus Nunes are capable of keeping the ball against any team while Pedro Neto, Daniel Podence and Goncalo Guedes can all play anywhere in the front three – so expect them to rotate.
Former Chelsea and Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa, Wolves’ new signing, hasn’t made the bench.
In a welcome sight for everyone, the England right-back is back in the squad after missing Wednesday night’s Champions League match. He is considered fit enough to be on the bench.
His absence has meant a move to the right for John Stones, who gave his all in that position in midweek.
However, Aymeric Laporte and Kalvin Phillips are not fully fit so will not feature in the squad today.
