The next Manchester City match is upon us! The Blues are in Ukraine for the final group stage game of this season’s Champions League, and Pep Guardiola took 20 players with him for this one. Two will be cut from the final matchday squad, and 18 will be in uniform on Wednesday night.

This is the full squad:

Goalkeepers: 1. Claudio Bravo, 31. Ederson Moraes, 32. Daniel Grimshaw

Defenders: 2. Kyle Walker, 3. Danilo Luiz, 4. Vincent Kompany, 15. Eliaquim Mangala, 18. Fabian Delph, 24. Tosin Adarabioyo, 30. Nicolas Otamendi

Midfielders: 8. Ilkay Gundogan, 20. Bernardo Silva, 25. Fernandinho, 42. Yaya Touré, 47. Phil Foden

Forwards: 7. Raheem Sterling, 10. Sergio Agüero, 19. Leroy Sané, 33. Gabriel Jesus, 55. Brahim Díaz

There are four players unavailable for this one: John Stones and Benjamin Mendy are out with long-term injuries, Kevin De Bruyne is suspended and David Silva stayed home to rest and recover from a small problem that could keep him out of the Manchester Derby. There is a very good chance Pep Guardiola rotates his squad and gives chances to reserves and youngsters, resting the big names for the trip to Old Trafford.

Predicted starting XI (4-3-3):

Ederson; Danilo, Kompany, Mangala, Delph; Gundogan, Touré, Foden; Bernardo, Jesus, Sané

The match kicks off on Wednesday night at 7:45pm GMT (UK) / 8:45pm WAT (Nigeria) / 2:45pm ET, 11:45am PT (USA) / 1:15 IST (India, Thursday), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
