Why Phil Foden is missing from Manchester City's Champions League squad

Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden is not part of Pep Guardiola’s squad to face Shakhtar Donetsk in their Champions League opener because he is not fully fit.

The 19-year-old has played just ten minutes of football in the Premier League this season and misses out on the trip to Ukraine due to concerns over his fitness.

Fellow youngster Ivan Poveda-Ocampo misses out for the same reason while both Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte weren’t included in the squad following their recent surgeries.

Supercomputer predicts Man City's Champions League campaign

Manchester City begin their Champions League season on Wednesday with a trip to Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk, as they look to kick off their continental campaign in solid form.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will address the media today as his side prepares to face Shakhtar Donetsk in their Champions League opener.

City are aiming to bounce back after suffering a shocking defeat against Norwich in the Premier League at the weekend, allowing Liverpool to stretch their lead at the top of the table to five points.

Guardiola is likely to reintroduce Kevin De Bruyne back into the starting line up after the Belgian was left on the bench against the Canaries.

Following Nicolas Otamendi's poor performance alongside John Stones, the City boss could also decide to trial Fernandinho as part of the back four.

Benjamin Mendy could also be involved after returning to full first-team training.

Stay tuned for all the latest Man City updates and transfer gossip throughout the day.
