Feyenoord v Man City – Probable lineups – Star playmaker could make first start in 10 months

Manchester City will be looking to maintain their winning run when they take on Feyenoord in the UEFA Champions League.

The clash takes place at the De Kuip stadium, kick-off is scheduled for 19:45 (GMT).

Germany international Ilkay Gundogan could make his first appearances for City in over nine months. The 26-year-old suffered a knee ligament injury back in December during a clash with Watford FC.

Gundogan returned to training over the summer and featured in a friendly encounter with Girona last month.

Guardiola included Gundogan in the match day squad against Liverpool on Saturday but the playmaker did not make an appearance.

Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson is an injury doubt going into the game following his collision with Liverpool’s Sadio Mane. The Brazil U23 was stretchered off during the Blues’ 5-0 thrashing of Liverpool.
