The Sky Blues head into the game having fallen to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of PSG in their last European outing.

Man City actually played pretty well against Lionel Messi and co., but as they came away with a loss, they now really need to ensure they pick up a win on Tuesday as Club Brugge are currently sat 2nd in Group A after winning one and drawing one of their opening two Champions League games.

Why John Stones is missing for Man City

Ahead of the tie, Manchester City would, of course, release their starting line-up an hour before kick-off.

The starting eleven and matchday squad was a strong one for the Sky Blues, with Phil Foden this time seemingly the man tasked with operating up top for the Manchester outfit.

Pep Guardiola would also welcome Ederson back to into the XI after he missed out vs Burnley due to international commitments, whilst fellow Brazilian Gabriel Jesus was also named on the bench:

One noticeable omission from the entire matchday squad, however, was John  Stones.

However, an explanation for the defender missing out has already been provided. And City fans should not be too concerned, with Stones not in the traveling squad due to personal reasons, not injury or illness issues:
