Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. RB Leipzig

Sports Mole rounds up all of Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with RB Leipzig.

Aiming to go one better than they did in the 2020-21 Champions League, Manchester City's quest for continental glory begins on Wednesday evening against RB Leipzig in Group A.

The Citizens travelled to Porto for last season's final boasting the favourites tag against Chelsea, but Kai Havertz's winner handed Pep Guardiola even more misery on the European stage.

However, the Premier League champions head into their matchweek one battle on the back of three consecutive league wins, most recently prevailing 1-0 against Leicester City to avenge their Community Shield defeat.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Man City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
