Manchester City on International Duty – October 2020

The Manchester City senior men’s squad has dispersed for the October 2020 international break.

Several of Manchester City’s senior men’s team will compete during the 2020/21 UEFA Nations League, and others will participate in a series of international friendlies and 2020 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Their involvement during these international fixtures, however, will lead to a cause for concern.

Sergio Agüero, Gabriel Jesus, John Stones, and Oleksandr Zinchenko are already sidelined due to injury and have not featured in City’s recent matches.
