Man City XI vs Sevilla: Predicted line-ups, confirmed squad news and latest Champions League injuries

K

yle Walker and John Stones have been left out of Manchester City’s squad which traveled to Sevilla for the first Champions League game of the season.

Walker limped off in Saturday’s draw with Aston Villa as no confirmation was given as to why Stones will miss the trip.

Aymeric Laporte, meanwhile, remains a long-term absentee.

With Pep Guardiola short of defensive numbers, summer signing Manuel Akanji was included in the 21-man squad, along with Kalvin Phillips.

The latter struggled with worries throughout the early stages of his City career but is in line to make his Champions League bow against Sevilla.

Jack Grealish is also traveling, with an expected rotation as Guardiola juggles a continental campaign and a domestic season which he believes will bring plenty of twists and turns.

Manchester City predicted XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Ake, Gomez; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Marhez, Haaland, Grealish

injured: Walker, Stones, Laporte
