Gareth Southgate has named eight players from Manchester clubs in his latest England squad.
There are also three spots for Manchester United stars Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard and Jadon Sancho. Shaw is something of a surprise inclusion given he missed Wednesday’s win over Villarreal through injury.
Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford, both of whom were part of England's Euro 2020 squad, miss out through injury, while there is still no place for Mason Greenwood in the 23-man group, although Southgate did say this was due to managing his workload after a busy 18 months for the teenager.
Who else is included?
Aaron Ramsdale, Fikayo Tomori and Ollie Watkins all return to the squad, while Reece James and Mason Mount have been called up despite recent injuries.
Jude Bellingham is however, a surprise omission from the roster with Southgate saying, similarly to Greenwood, he wants to avoid overworking the youngster.
Ben Chilwell is also missing as he’s slipped down the pecking order at Chelsea, while Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are out through injury.
Who are England playing?
The Three Lions start the international break with a trip to Andorra before hosting Hungary on Tuesday 12th October.
Both games are World Cup qualifiers and after the next round of fixtures there will be just two more qualifiers remaining.
