Gundogan returns in Man City friendly after eight-month layoff
(Reuters) - Ilkay Gundogan made his first appearance in eight months for Manchester City on Tuesday when he came on as a second-half substitute against Girona in a friendly in Spain.
The German midfielder, who suffered knee ligament damage against Watford last December, could be in contention for a place in the squad for Monday's home tie against Everton.
City beat Girona 1-0, with the 26-year-old coming on as a substitute in the 71st minute.
City beat promoted Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 in their Premier League opener on Saturday.
