Manchester City team news update ahead of Sevilla

Manchester City kick off their 2022/23 Champions League journey vs Sevilla on Tuesday evening at 8 pm.


Ahead of the game, it has been revealed which players have trained with the group ahead of facing Sevilla.

As per the Manchester Evening News, Kyle Walker missed Manchester City training on Monday after limping out of their match with Aston Villa.

On a more positive note, Kalvin Phillips was back with the group after his recent absence and new signing Manuel Akanji was also present.

Training squad in full: Ederson, Ortega, Carson, Cancelo, Lewis, Ake, Dias, Akanji, Stones, Gomez, Wilson-Esbrand, Rodri, Phillips, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Palmer, Foden, Knight, Bernardo, Grealish, Mahrez, Alvarez, Haaland

Given the absence of Walker, it is expected Joao Cancelo will take up a starting role at right-back and new signing Sergio Gomez will slot in at right-back.

Sevilla vs Manchester City

The Citizens have found themselves in a group alongside Sevilla, Borussia Dortmund and Copenhagen.

It is a group the Sky Blues are expected to win as they once again look to end their long search for a Champions League trophy.

City reached the final in 2021 and then were knocked out in the semis earlier this year by eventual winners, Real Madrid.

Sevilla, meanwhile, are likely to drop down into the Europa League. They have faced Man City twice before, losing 2-1 and 3-1.
