Manchester City have this afternoon confirmed that two of the club’s key men will be absent for their Champions League matchup with Dutch giants Feyenoord.
Pep Guardiola’s men are set to take on Eredivisie champions Feyenoord in their opening Group F fixture of this season’s Champions League campaign tomorrow night, fresh off the back of a 5-0 demolition of Liverpool at the Etihad on Saturday.
The Citizens have officially revealed their 19-man panel for the clash, with a few notable absentees.
Both midfielder Yaya Toure and central defender/captain Vincent Kompany have missed out, with the latter having picked up the latest in a long line of fitness problems during his recent international commitments with Belgium.
As a result, the Sky Blues will likely start with John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi at the heart of their defence, though Danilo could once again fill in as a third central defender, as he did versus Liverpool at the weekend.
However, there is some positive news on the injury front for City, with goalkeeper Ederson having been included, despite the nasty facial injury he picked during a challenge with Sadio Mane just three days ago.
The Brazilian shot-stopper returned to training with his teammates earlier today:
