Gylfi Sigurdsson could play in midfield while Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin will likely play up top.
Nathan Ake is back in the team and could play at centre-back to give his team-mates a rest.
Sergio Aguero may also start for City, having featured numerous times from the bench lately.

Everton and Manchester City's first ever encounter took place way back in 1899 in Manchester where the Merseysiders won 2-1 in the First Division.
Since then, the two Premier League sides have faced off a total of 189 times with City winning a mere majority of 74 games, compared to the Toffees' 68 wins.
But Everton and the Manchester giants have only locked horns 10 times in the FA Cup throughout their long and glittering history.
The Merseysiders have won four times in the competition whereas the Citizens have only managed three victories in the process.
The two sides' most recent encounter took place in the Premier League last month when City won 3-1 thanks to goals by Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva – Richarlison temporarily equalised for Everton that day

GOOD EVENING FROM LIVERPOOL
Welcome to our live coverage of the FA Cup quarter-final clash between Everton and Manchester City at Goodison Park.
This marks the first FA Cup meeting between the Merseysiders and City since the 1980-1981 quarter-final tie, which the Citizens won 3-1 in a replay on their way to the final.
The Toffees are going to be missing both of their senior goalkeepers Jordan Pickford and Robin Olsen due to injury and thus youngster Joao Virginia is going to start between the sticks.
Pickford aggravated a rib problem during last week's loss to Burnley whereas Olsen is still nursing an abdominal muscle injury.
Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti's injury problems don't end there as he will also be without key players Fabian Delph (tendon), Abdoulaye Doucoure (foot) and James Rodriguez (calf).
City boss Pep Guardiola, on the other hand, has no injuries or suspensions to deal with after his team advanced to the Champions League quarter-finals.
However, that doesn't mean Guardiola won't be making any changes to his starting line-up as he is still targeting a historical quadruple this season.
Raheem Sterling could be among the City manager's changes as the star winger hasn't started in any of the Manchester giants' last three matches
