Kevin De Bruyne and Aymeric Laporte have been left out of Manchester City’s squad to play RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Wednesday.
John Stones is also absent from the group, although he has been missing since January with a hamstring injury.
There was no immediate explanation for De Bruyne and Laporte not travelling to Germany, with Pep Guardiola due to meet the media later on Tuesday.
Both players started Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest. De Bruyne was substituted in the 88th minute, while Laporte completed the match.

Meanwhile, Leipzig were hoping to have Christopher Nkunku available after he returned to action for the first time since November.
Having played at Wolfsburg at the weekend, Nkunku could not complete Leipzig’s full training session on Tuesday, the club said, due to a muscle issue.
