The next Manchester City match is upon us! The Blues are in Italy for a big Champions League game against Napoli at the San Paolo Stadium tonight, and Pep Guardiola has called up 20 players for the trip. Two will be cut from the matchday squad, and 18 players will be in uniform.

This is the full squad:

Goalkeepers: 1. Claudio Bravo, 31. Ederson Mores, 49. Aro Muric

Defenders: 2. Kyle Walker, 3. Danilo Luiz, 5. John Stones, 15. Eliaquim Mangala, 18. Fabian Delph, 24. Tosin Adarabioyo, 30. Nicolas Otamendi

Midfielders: 8. Ilkay Gundogan, 17. Kevin De Bruyne, 19. Leroy Sané, 20. Bernardo Silva, 21. David Silva, 25. Fernandinho, 42. Yaya Touré

Forwards: 7. Raheem Sterling, 10. Sergio Agüero, 33. Gabriel Jesus

There are no fresh injury concerns for Pep ahead of the trip to Italy, with Vincent Kompany and Benjamin Mendy the only absentees due to physical issues. Phil Foden just came back from the u17 World Cup and is not fit to play, while Brahim Díaz misses out with a knee problem.

Predicted starting XI (4-3-3):

Ederson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Silva; Jesus, Agüero, Sané
