Fernandinho breaks up the play as Shakhtar looked to attack. It's shifted to Sterling who instinctively flicks it into the path of Jesus, who is caught offside by the visitors' high line.

STAT: Shakhtar Donetsk have been beaten in seven of their last nine CL away matches, winning just once. The Ukrainian champions did avoid defeat in their last Cl away match tough, drawing 2-2 at Lyon.

5' 

Laporte switches a sublime diagonal ball towards Mahrez on the right. The forward jinks past one but can't wriggle past the other as the flood of City shirts in the middle turn back in disappointment.

4' 

No surprise to see City dominating possession from the off.

3' 

If City did lose tonight, they would become the first ever English team to lose four home CL matches on the spin. That would be a big shock....

2' 

Head-to-head: City have won two and drawn one of their three home matches with Ukrainian opposition. They have not conceded a goal in that time. However, the Citizens are on a run of three straight home defeats in Europe, losing all of those games by a 2-1 scoreline (Basel, Liverpool and Lyon).

Guardiola on David Silva: "It was always a problem to play against him. He is one of the most incredible players in the world playing in the pockets, in the small spaces between some players. We try to attack, to move in small spaces. Few players in the world can do that and he is a master. He plays football better than the other ones so to survive against physical teams, a footballer plays with the ball. He moves in a more intelligent way."

In fact, no Ukrainian side has ever won on these shores in 28 trips to England. There have been just six draws, with Dynamo Kiev the last team to avoid a loss when they held City to a 0-0 draw in March 2016.

Shakhtar come into this in buoyant mood, despite losing 3-0 at home to City on Matchday 3. The Ukrainian champions saw off rivals, Dynamo Kiev 2-1 at the weekend. It was their first win against Kiev in seven meetings. However, Donetsk have never won at match in England in seven visits.

Pep Guardiola: "Every game is important, and you have to evaluate. Shakhtar is the most important because it's the first one. After dropping points against Lyon every game is a final. We have a chance to step into next round, then we have three or four days to think about Manchester United."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he 'trusts' the club's conduct amid FFP allegations (Martin Rickett/PA).

City have made three changes from the team that hit Southampton for six. Gabriel Jesus leads the line in place of Sergio Aguero, while Oleksandr Zinchenko and Riyad Mahrez also come in.
