Champions League matchday two vs. Shakhtar Donetsk

Champions League matchday two vs. Shakhtar Donetsk

Man City (4-3-3): Emerson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, D Silva; Jesus, Aguero, Sane. One of them, Taison, scored their opener against Napoli, while the wingers Bernard and Marlos are also first-team regulars. Taison has repeatedly won Brazil caps, and this time they've invited Fred.

City insiders claim the injury has settled down since the weekend and the France worldwide is desperate to make the Champions League tie against the Ukrainians, who landed a shock victory over Napoli in the opening group game.

Sergio Aguero celebrates after scoring Manchester City's 4th goal during the English Premier League football match against Crystal Palace at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, northwest England, on September 23, 2017. "We're professionals and all the players are here to win games and when they win, their lives as professionals are better".

- City are unbeaten in their last 10 Champions League home games (W7 D3 L0), their longest run without a defeat on home soil in the competition. It will be the five-time winners' first away game in the Champions League proper since a 2-2 draw at Ludugorets Razgrad in 2014.

Aguero was given the chance to score his landmark goal when Silva chipped a wonderful pass into the box for him to volley, but Pyatov was equal to the shot, parrying it to safety, and Silva had a claim for a penalty waved away after 65 minutes when Ivan Ordets dispossessed him with a heavy challenge.

Aguero has started this season on fire for City, scoring 7 goals and providing 3 assists in 7 appearances across all competitions. The famously lucrative "Brazilian colony" from which both players came was established at Shakhtar by the former manager Mircea Lucescu and remains very much in place, with the club now boasting seven in the squad.

Ahead of the Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk at the Etihad Stadium, here are a quartet of points to consider.

A Harry Kane hat-trick saw Spurs notch their second win in as many games in Group H, beating Cypriot champions APOEL Nicosia 3-0 in Cyprus. The Argentine, who once spent an ill-fated season on loan at Newcastle, seems to have rediscovered his goalscoring touch.

Manchester City may have the odds in their favour but they must not expect a walkover at home to Shakhtar Donetsk this evening, Pep Guardiola has warned.

The Ukrainian champions are not to be underestimated. It remains to be seen though, how captain Darijo Srna's recent doping scandal has affected the dressing room and the confidence.

De Bruyne nearly turned provider after 69 minutes with an enterprising run down the right and ideal cross which substitute Raheem Sterling side-footed wide on the volley although City had to survive a late penalty appeal after the ball struck John Stones's arm.
