Club Brugge Team News
Club Brugge have no injury or suspension issues for City’s visit, however Eder Balanta will be suspended for the Etihad meeting next month if he receives a booking here.
The Colombian international returned late from international duty and did not play against Kortrijk, but Vormer will be hoping to keep his compatriot out of the starting lineup after his match-winning brace at the weekend.
Noa Lang, an Arsenal target, assisted on Vormer’s second goal over the weekend and should be part of a solid attacking lineup alongside Charles De Ketelaere and Kamal Sowah.
Manchester City Team News
City’s Ilkay Gundogan and Oleksandr Zinchenko were both fit enough to start against Burnley, but Ferran Torres’ foot fracture has ruled him out until the end of the season.
Guardiola has refused to confirm Gabriel Jesus and Ederson’s availability for Tuesday’s match, although the Brazilian duo should be fit to play from the start as City manager Pep Guardiola rotates his resources.
Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, and Jack Grealish are all expected to return to the starting lineup, with Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling’s places in the team in jeopardy.
