Manchester City are without top scorer Sergio Aguero for Wednesday's Premier League clash with Cardiff at the Etihad Stadium.
The striker was substituted with a muscle problem in Saturday's victory at Fulham and will not be risked with an FA Cup semi-final and a Champions League quarter-final in the next week.
Utility man Fabian Delph also remains on the sidelines with a knock that forced him to miss England's recent internationals and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo (Achilles) is a long-term absentee.
Man City currently trail Liverpool by two points in the title race, but the game against Cardiff is a game-in-hand for Pep Guardiola's side, who will go top with a victory.
Provisional squad: Ederson, Muric, Walker, Danilo, Stones, Otamendi, Laporte, Kompany, Zinchenko, Mendy, Gundogan, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, D Silva, B Silva, Foden, Sane, Sterling, Mahrez, Jesus.
