Shakhtar v Manchester City – Confirmed lineups – Guardiola receives major injury boost

Manchester City will be hoping to register back-to-back wins in the UEFA Champions League when they take on Shakhtar Donetsk tonight.

The clash takes place at the OSC Metalist stadium while kick-off is scheduled for 20:00 (GMT).

The Citizens suffered a defeat at the hands of Lyon by a 2-1 scoreline in their opening Group F game. Pep Guardiola’s side did, however, return to winning ways with a victory over Hoffenheim at the Etihad.

Shakhtar meanwhile has drawn their opening two games and sit in third place with two points after two games.

Man City star playmaker Ilkay Gundogan missed the weekend 5-0 win over Burnley FC due to a hamstring injury he picked up against Hoffenheim.

Gundogan has failed to recover in time for tonight’s clash and has been left out of Guardiola’s squad.

The Spanish tactician has however received a major injury boost as Kevin De Bruyne returns to the starting eleven.
