Man City leaves De Bruyne and Walker out of travelling squad to face Olympiacos

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola will be without the services of defender Kyle Walker and midfielder Kevin De Bruyne in their Champions League tie against Olympiacos on Wednesday night.

The English side is more than safe in their group with the move to leave the duo behind seen as a move to rest the players ahead of the gruelling December schedule.

There is a place through for left-back Benjamin Mendy who has been out with an injury with the Frenchman hoping to get more game time under his belt but will have to fight for the left-back place with Joao Cancelo who has impressed in his absence.

Academy duo Cole Palmer and Felix Nmecha have also made the team with the players having already made their Champions League debuts this season.

Manchester City travelling squad:

Goalkeepers: Zack Steffen, Ederson, Scott Carson

Defenders: Ruben Dias, John Stones, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Aymeric Laporte, Benjamin Mendy, Fernandinho, Joao Cancelo, Eric Garcia

Midfielders: Ilkay Gundogan, Rodrigo, Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden, Felix Nmecha, Tommy Doyle, Cole Palmer

Forwards: Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Sergio Aguero, Ferran Torres, Riyad Mahrez
