The next Manchester City match is upon us! The Blues play their first Champions League home game of the season against Shakhtar Donetsk, and Pep Guardiola has a couple of selection problems for this game.

This is the full squad:

Goalkeepers: 1. Claudio Bravo, 31. Éderson Moraes

Defenders: 2. Kyle Walker, 3. Danilo Luiz, 5. John Stones, 15. Eliaquim Mangala, 22. Benjamin Mendy*, 24. Tosin Adarabioyo, 30. Nicolas Otamendi

Midfielders: 17. Kevin De Bruyne, 18. Fabian Delph, 19. Leroy Sané, 20. Bernardo Silva, 21. David Silva, 25. Fernandinho, 42. Yaya Touré, 47. Phil Foden

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


Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan miss out with injury and Benjamin Mendy could also be ruled out if he doesn’t pass his pre-match test, so Pep has less players than usual but he can still choose a pretty strong team against Shakhtar.

Predicted starting lineup (4-3-3):

Éderson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Danilo; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Silva; Bernardo, Agüero, Jesus

The match kicks off on Tuesday at 7:45pm (UK & Nigeria) / 2:45pm ET, 11:45am PT (USA) / 12:15am IST (India, Wednesday), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
