Diédhiou returns to City squad

Famara Diedhiou has returned to the City matchday squad, who face Blackburn Rovers this afternoon (1.30pm).

And City have named an unchanged starting XI for the home clash.

It means Lee Johnson’s side line up as they did last weekend, when they beat Swansea 1-0 away in South Wales.

But Diédhiou, who is available after serving a six-game suspension, is named among today’s substitutes.

City: Mäenpaää, Hunt, Webster, Kalas, Kelly, Watkins, Brownhill, Pack (C), Eliasson, Taylor, Weimann. Subs: O'Leary (GK), Pisano, Dasilva, Diédhiou, O'Dowda, Walsh, Paterson.

Blackburn: Raya (GK), Nyambe, Smallwood, Armstrong, Graham, Mulgrew (C), Bell, Lenihan, Evans, Bennett, Palmer. Subs: Leutwiler (GK), Williams, Reed, Rothwell, Brereton, Nuttall, Conway.
