Fekir or no Fekir? Lyon name squad to face Manchester City with two injuries

Nabil Fekir was considered an injury doubt by manager Bruno Genesio to line up for Lyon against Manchester City on Tuesday night, but it looks like he’ll play a part having been named in the French side’s 19-man squad.

The 25-year-old, who could have been facing City as a Liverpool player this season had a proposed move not collapsed, joins the likes of Tanguy Ndombele, Memphis Depay and Moussa Dembélé in the Lyon squad.

Two Lyon players are absent due to fitness related problems, with Léo Dubois, who played 11 minutes in the reverse fixture, still recovering and young Amine Gouiri out through injury.

Lyon will be hoping to do the double over Manchester City having stunned the Premier League champions at the Etihad Stadium in the first week of Group F games.

Their squad list to face Manchester City is as follows:
