Man City Provisional Squad Against Cardiff City – Ilkay Gundogan Selected, Star Defender Ruled Out

Manchester City take on Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

City will be hoping to bounce back from a shock defeat in the Champions League against Lyon mid-week.

The Citizens will be without left-back Benjamin Mendy for the trip to Cardiff.

The France international has missed the last two matches due to a foot injury and has not made the squad against the Welsh giants.

In the absence of Mendy Pep Guardiola is likely to give Fabian Delph the nod.

Guardiola will also be without midfielder Kevin De Bruyne who is out with a knee injury and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo who is sidelined due to a problem with his Achilles.

Midfielder of Turkish origin Ilkay Gundogan has made the squad and will be hoping to make the starting lineup after coming off the bench in the last two Premier League games.

Gundogan has a total of one assist in seven appearances for City in all competitions this season.
