The return of Arda Turan was the major news as Barcelona today announced their squad for Tuesday's Champions League clash at Manchester City (20:45 CET).

Head coach Luis Enrique has named his travelling party for the Group C trip earlier than usual as Barça are due to fly to Manchester on Monday morning.

Turan has recovered from ankle injury

Turk Turan is back after missing his side's LaLiga win over Granada on Saturday with an ankle knock picked up in the midweek Catalan Super Cup against Espanyol.

No Piqué, Alba, Mathieu, Iniesta or Vidal

Enrique is unable to call on Gerard Piqué, Jordi Alba, Jérémy Mathieu, Andrés Iniesta and outcast Aleix Vidal, who the club say remains injured with a groin issue.

Meanwhile, Barça B players Marlon Santos, Nili Perdomo and Carles Aleñà are again in the squad, having also been included for the Granada game.

Barcelona squad to face Manchester City:

Ter Stegen, Cillessen, Masip, Rakitic, Busquets, Denis Suárez, Turan, Luis Suárez, Messi, Neymar, Rafinha, Mascherano, Alcácer, Digne, Roberto, Gomes, Umtiti, Aleñá, Nili and Marlon.
