Manchester City take on Shakhtar Donetsk at the Metalist Stadium in Ukraine at the in the Champions League on Tuesday.

City head into the clash in second place in Group F, just a single point behind leaders Lyon. However, a Shakhtar win would move them ahead of the Citizens.

Head coach Pep Guardiola will be without two star names heading into the match.

Midfielder of Turkish origin Ilkay Gundogan is out with a hamstring problem.

Gundogan is nearing recovery but will definitely not feature against the Ukraine giants.

Additionally, Brazil full-back Danilo is out sidelined with an ankle injury sustained on international duty.

Guardiola could however, welcome back defender Kyle Walker who has recovered from a groin injury.

The right-back missed the 5-0 victory over Burnley over the weekend but Guardiola has included him in the traveling squad.
