Shakhtar Donetsk vs Manchester City, Champions League: Predicted Lineups

In freezing temperatures against a Shakhtar team which only needed a draw to be sure of qualifying, City struggled to cope with rapid counterattacks by the Ukrainian side's Brazilian forwards.

Silva, who scored the pivotal victor against West Ham United on Sunday, was left out of the City squad that travelled to Kharkiv for their final Champions League group game against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Pogba will miss the Manchester derby for this tackle.

The Ukrainian champions need to deny City victory at the Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv on Wednesday to guarantee themselves a place in the last 16.

And, although they could not overturn the deficit in Kharkiv, and in truth never really got near to doing so, bouncing back from this defeat, in what was a dead rubber for them anyway, should be an easier task than having to recover from a set-back in the Premier League. City also returned to the 3-4-3 formation that looked less than fluid in the first few games of the season.

The midfielder's first touch was poor and took him wide, but as the City defence stood off, he cut inside onto his right foot and curled a sumptuous shot into the top corner. Phil Foden showed good composure although this was a tough test for the 17-year-old in an unfamiliar wing back role.

"I have complete trust in the team". But it's not always about winning or losing - it's about playing the same way we always do and giving our all.

Yet even after seeing his side progress, Mourinho reacted to comments made by Guardiola regarding the current fitness of Manchester City's David Silva.

"The truth is Eric Bailly no chance for the weekend", he said, when asked which of his currently-injured players would be available on Sunday. That is nine of 10 outfielders who have hardly been overworked of late. It's because I decide [that he does not play]. The other is Aguero, who has a fine record in Manchester derbies and who at least kept alive the Blues' run of having scored in every game this season.

The result brought City's long unbeaten run to an end after 28 matches and ended a sequence of 20 successive wins.
