Manchester City team news & predicted line-up vs Borussia Dortmund

Here’s the latest Man City team news ahead of their Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund...

Manchester City have already booked their spot in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The task now is securing top spot in Group G and a point in Germany on Tuesday would be enough.

But they face a tricky game away at Borussia Dortmund who could move above them if they were to better City’s 2-1 win in the reverse fixture.

Ahead of the clash, 101 Great Goals takes a look at the Premier League champions’ team news…

Predicted Manchester City line-up vs Borussia Dortmund

Sergio Gomez

It was a night to forget for Sergio Gomez in Manchester City’s last Champions League outing.

The Spaniard was shown a straight red card after just 30 minutes against FC Copenhagen.

He will now miss the next three European matches including Tuesday’s clash.

Kyle Walker

Kyle Walker remains sidelined with a groin injury and is now recovering from surgery.

The 32-year-old’s absence and Gomez’s suspension leaves City light in the full-back area.

John Stones could be the player who could replace him on Tuesday.

Fortunately for Gareth Southgate, the defender looks set to be available for the World Cup.

Kalvin Phillips

Kalvin Phillips’ frustrating start to life at the Etihad continues as he is still out with a shoulder injury.

He’s played just 14 minutes for the English champions this season.

The midfielder is unlikely to play for City again this year but he could be back in time for the World Cup.

Phil Foden

Phil Foden was a minor doubt for the weekend’s clash but was passed fit to make the bench.

The 22-year-old made an appearance on the bench in the 62nd minute.

He is now expected to be back in the line-up for the crucial clash with Dortmund.
