Demeaco Duhaney appears on the bench for the first time along with Brahim Diaz who will hope to make his third appearance for the senior team at some stage.
City starting XI and bench:
Ederson, Danilo, Mangala, Adarabioyo, Fernandinho (c), Foden, Yaya Toure, Gundogan, Bernardo, Sane, G Jesus
Subs: Bravo, Walker, Sterling, Aguero, Otamendi, Duhaney, Diaz
It seems Fernandinho may drop in at full-back with Yaya Toure anchoring the midfield and Foden, Sane and Bernardo supporting Gabriel Jesus - so effectively, 4-1-4-1.
Shakhtar Donetsk line-up:
City would make it 21 wins in succession with a victory against Shakhtar - avoiding defeat would also stretch the unbeaten run to 29 games.
If Shakhtar earn a point or more, they will qualify for the Round of 16 at the expense of Napoli. Should City win and Napoli win, Shakhtar would drop into the Europa League.
