Full Squad List: Two absent as 23-man squad trains ahead of Copenhagen last-16 Champions League tie



| Last Updated:


Manchester City have finalised their preparations this week ahead of their return to UEFA Champions League action on Wednesday night.

City come into the meeting with the Danish club holding a strong 3-1 advantage from the first-leg in Scandinavia last month, with goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, and Phil Foden placing one step into the quarter-finals of the competition.

Their most recent outing also brought about a 3-1 scoreline, as City came from behind to a Marcus Rashford strike to defeat bitter rivals Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium in a victory largely inspired by the brilliance of Phil Foden.

The meeting with Copenhagen precedes a mammoth Premier League title race showdown at Anfield, as Pep Guardiola and his players take on Jurgen Klopp’s men with just a single point separating the two teams at the top of the division.

Pep Guardiola has been boosted by another week working with a largely fully-fit and available squad in a huge week for the club, despite Jack Grealish not being expected back in the side until after the March international break.

Here is a complete list of Manchester City players that featured in the open segment of Pep Guardiola’s training session at the City Football Academy on Tuesday afternoon!

23-man Manchester City training squad ahead of FC Copenhagen

Goalkeepers: Ederson, Ortega Moreno, Carson

Defenders: Walker, Lewis, Stones, Dias, Ake, Akanji, Gvardiol, Gomez

Midfielders: Rodri, Susoho, De Bruyne, Nunes, Kovacic, Bernardo, Wright

Forwards: Haaland, Hamilton, Foden, Bobb, Alvarez

Josko Gvardiol is back and available with the Manchester City squad following a number of weeks ruled out through an ankle ligament problem, having trained with the group over the last couple of days and being named in the matchday squad on Sunday afternoon.

Jeremy Doku becomes the latest name to join Jack Grealish on the absentees list, however the nature of his problem that forced an exit from first-team training duties on Tuesday remains unknown following Pep Guardiola’s press conference earlier in the day.
