Manchester City squad and team news
Haaland could make his City debut against Club America. Guardiola will likely also want to give some minutes to Phillips and Alvarez.
The Spanish tactician will be eager to try out various combinations with his new players before the new Premier League season kicks off on August 6.
“We cannot put too much pressure on these players. We need to get them houses, and apartments in Manchester, and in the sessions what we want them to do will increase,” Guardiola has said of the new signings.
“The first impressions of Julian, Kalvin, Erling, and Stefan were really good – they seem like good people. Having good vibes in the locker room is more important than tactics.”
However, Phil Foden, Ilkay Gundogan and John Stones will be unavailable as they did not travel to the United States because of their vaccination status.
