With former captain Vincent Kompany leaving in the summer and Pep Guardiola failing to add a new centre-back to his squad, the Citizens have been short of options at the heart of defence, which has forced midfielder Fernandinho to fill the gap.

Back-to-back Premier League winners Manchester City have had their backs to the wall for weeks now, as Liverpool took an early lead atop the table, looking for their first-ever Premier League-era title.

The champions have now fallen 11 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool, with Fernandinho's absence from midfield cited as an issue by critics.

The Argentine striker will miss Tuesday's clash and also Saturday's visit of neighbours Manchester United, Guardiola confirmed at his pre-match press conference on Monday.

Asked why Guardiola has not picked Stones and Otamendi together since the 3-2 league defeat against Norwich in September, he replied: "Because I like Fernandinho in that position".

"Have you seen the games?"

All the good players still score runs and take wickets regardless of the colour I think it's just a slight shift in how we think about it.

"We had 26 shots, not all on target, at Newcastle".

"I prefer Gundogan and Rodri in this position [midfield]". "To do that away is incredible. [We have to] try to be.the chances that we have and the few we concede, to be more solid in these departments and we will improve". "We did it again but unfortunately, we couldn't win". The team is always there, that is my feeling.

City can not afford to lose any more ground on Liverpool as they pursue a third successive Premier League crown, with Manchester United set to arrive at Etihad Stadium four days after their clash at Burnley.

"They have to believe in a win tomorrow, that is a fact", said Guardiola.

"In the situation we are we can not think about the people who are in front". They are so good with the second balls and the set pieces.

"So I think we have to think about what we have to do to win the games and play quite similar to how we played in our [previous] games, especially the last one against Newcastle or the last 20, 25 minutes against Chelsea".
