Manchester City without Kyle Walker for Girona friendly: Watch title favourites LIVE on Eurosport
By Eurosport

22 hours agoUpdated 17 hours agoManchester City will be without England right-back Kyle Walker for their friendly match with Girona, but Benjamin Mendy and Ilkay Gundogan return to the squad.

Pep Guardiola’s title favourites won their Premier League opener 2-0 at Brighton on Saturday, and the Spanish coach names a 26-man squad for the Costa Brava Trophy match, a game you can see live on Eurosport 1 and the Eurosport Player at 4:50pm (BST) on Tuesday.


The game at the Estadi Municipal de Montilivi in Girona is part of a four-day training camp in Catalonia, which takes in a match with the newly-promoted Liga side.

The £53m buy from Tottenham apparently asked for time off to miss the trip with Guardiola accepting the request.

Mendy is closing in on his first appearance for the club after training with his new team-mates for the first time.

Mendy has been suffering with a thigh injury since his £52million summer move from Monaco.

But the Frenchman took part in a training session in Catalonia on Monday.

Mendy spent one season at Monaco before being snapped up by City and jetting straight to the United States to join his new club on their pre-season tour.

Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and new signing Bernardo Silva are included for City. Samir Nasri has been omitted from the travelling party after being part of the pre-season excursion to the USA and Iceland, but Fabian Delph has been named in the squad.

The game will serve as Girona’s final run-out before their historic debut in La Liga. Former Middlesbrough forward Cristhian Stuani and on-loan Stoke City defender Marc Muniesa are both expected to line-up for the Spanish side after moving to the newly promoted club in the summer.

City’s second match of the Premier League sees them host Everton at the Etihad Stadium on Monday 21 August.
