However, Manchester City are still without Nathan Ake. The 26-year-old suffered a hamstring injury against Newcastle on Boxing Day and is expected to remain sidelined for some time.
For the visitors, Mamadou Doucouré, Famana Quizera and Torben Müsel are all still out. Stefan Lainer missed the defeat to RB Leipzig with a hamstring injury but is expected to recover in time for the return meeting with City.
City quadruple would be ‘greatest achievement of any English team’
John Stones believes the current Manchester City side are showing signs of greatness after extending their unbeaten run to 20 games across all competitions.
City confidently dispatched Monchengladbach in the first leg and have now kept six straight clean sheets in the Champions League ahead of the return leg in March.
They remain in the hunt for silverware on four fronts and extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to 13 points with a win over West Ham on Saturday.
Speaking after that victory, Stones said: “I feel we put our hearts on our sleeves, really dug in and the defensive work from everyone, I think is the sign of a great team and hopefully things to come.”
For the current crop to be remembered as one of the great City sides Guardiola must surely lead his team to Champions League glory. City are favourites (5/2) for the European Cup but have not progressed beyond the last eight in four seasons under Guardiola.
Speaking to BT Sport, Joe Cole said: “The numbers are staggering. To win 20 in a row is incredible. They have raised the bar again.
“They are favourites in all three English competitions. If they could win all four it would be the greatest achievement of any English team.”
