Manchester City's next match is a Champions League trip to Scotland for a Battle of the Brits against Celtic FC at Celtic Park, and coach Pep Guardiola named a 21-man squad for the match.

He will have to cut three before the game since only 18 players can be in uniform, but this is the full list, which includes a few young faces from the Academy:


Goalkeepers: 1. Claudio Bravo, 13. WIlly Caballero, 64. Billy O'Brien

Defenders: 3. Bacary Sagna, 5. Pablo Zabaleta, 11. Aleksandar Kolarov, 22. Gael Clichy, 24. John Stones, 30. Nicolas Otamendi, 50. Pablo Maffeo, 69. Angelino Tasende

Midfielders: 6. Fernando, 7. Raheem Sterling, 8. Ilkay Gundogan, 15. Jesus Navas, 19. Leroy Sané, 21. David Silva, 25. Fernandinho

Forwards: 9. Nolito, 10. Sergio Agüero, 72. Kelechi Iheanacho


The most notable absences are obviously Kevin De Bruyne and Vincent Kompany, who will miss the next 2-3 weeks with muscle injuries. Fabian Delph and Angus Gunn are also injured and couldn't make the trip, as well as Yaya Touré and Aleix García, who haven't been named in the Champions League squad.

Predicted Man City lineup (4-1-4-1, r-l):

Bravo; Zabaleta, Otamendi, Kolarov, Clichy; Fernandinho; Sterling, Gundogan, Silva, Nolito; Agüero
