Rico Lewis and Oscar Bobb named in Man City B list for Champions League clash vs Crvena Zvezda

Pep Guardiola has named Oscar Bobb and Rico Lewis in his 'B List' for tonight's Champions League group stage game against Crvena Zvezda.

Manchester City will play their first game in the tournament as reigning champions this evening, following June's 1-0 win over Inter Milan in Istanbul. They host Serbian SuperLiga winners Crvena Zvezda, also known as Red Star Belgrade, at the Etihad and will hope to kick off their defence with three points.

City submitted their initial 'A List' at the start of the month, comprising of 21 senior first-team players. For each fixture, they can then submit a 'B List' of players to fill the squad.

Said list must comprise only of players born on or after January 1, 2002 who have been eligible to play for the club for an uninterrupted period of two years since their 15th birthday. It is why neither Bobb nor Lewis were named in the initial squad earlier this month.

The pair have since been named in the squad for this evening's game, but are the only two to get the call up. Micah Hamilton and Josh Adam were among four youngsters to train with the first-team yesterday, however they will not be involved in the matchday squad.

With no fresh injury concerns to take into the game, Guardiola looks set to stick with the matchday squad that beat West Ham United 3-1 on Saturday - a squad that included both Bobb and Lewis. The city boss had already confirmed that Mateo Kovacic and Jack Grealish won't be fit in time to feature.
