Hello, hello, City are back! Sort of. Pep Guardiola’s double-winning Shark Team begin their pre-season calendar today in Chicago with an International Champions Cup tie against Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.
It is a very depleted City squad with so many still on holidays after the World Cup in Russia, but the likes of club-record signing Riyad Mahrez and German whiz-kid Leroy Sané are in an otherwise youth-heavy squad that has travelled to the United States.
Here are the starting lineups selected by Pep Guardiola and his counterpart Lucien Favre for tonight’s friendly:
Manchester City XI: Bravo, Eric Garcia, Denayer, Zinchenko, Douglas Luiz, Harrison, Foden, Diaz, Mahrez, Bolton, Nmecha
Borussia Dortmund XI: Hitz, Zagadou, Isak, Götze, Rode, Pulisic, Schmelzer, Burnic, Larsen, Toprak, Bockhorn
The match can be viewed on Premier Sports in the UK. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
