The game, which will be shown live on BT Sport, has been moved to the earlier broadcast slot following the postponement of Leeds United’s clash with Southampton.

Dean Smith’s side’s visit to the Etihad Stadium was originally scheduled as our season opener but was rearranged to give our players time to rest after their involvement in the Champions League knock-out tournament in Portugal.

We will have full coverage of the game on ManCity.com.

Minute-by-minute text updates will begin from 16:00 (UK) and our live We’re Not Really Here show will get under way at 17:00.

CITY+ subscribers will be able to watch the full 90 minutes from midnight.
