The top goalscorer last season will want to be involved from the get-go given that the Bournemouth game was his only start. Foden and Bernardo started the away games on the right respectively, so he may have a point to prove before Crystal Palace.
The Argentine international will give Erling Haaland a rest. His movement will be assessed as he hasn’t had enough time to show his qualities on a Premier League pitch just yet.
Jack Grealish sat out of the Newcastle fixture due to an injury and is unlikely to be risked if there is any doubt regarding his fitness. Foden is young enough and fit to play his part from the start, showing what he can do from his favourite position on the left.
